The online art gallery DeviantArt is expanding its DeviantArt Protect tool in a bid to help artists and photographers figure out if their work has been sold as NFTs without their knowledge.
The software was added to DeviantArt last July 2021 and functions in a similar way to other image match detection programmes like Tin Eye or even Google reverse image search. The Protect software was originally intended to be just used within the site’s own interface and would allow users to see if someone had used their work to create derivative or overly similar artwork. Now it will be expanded to detect stolen works across the blockchains.
