If this person is truly an artist than they understand that it is not right to display other artists work without express consent. End of discussion.

I hate to say it, but Microkey can NOT be sued.  This is why artists add watermarks to their digital copies of things they post online.  It's a fair-use law.  So long as Microkey doesn't sell this stuff for a profit, he isn't breaking any laws. 

Sorry, Frankief, but copyright laws just keep people from reselling work for money. Microkey is well within his legal rights to post the work on his deviant art account.  

The artist has the right to request DA to pull the image, and then it is up to DA for hosting the image. They can take said image down if they wish to appease the artist.  It's happened every now and then.  

Needless to say, Microkey cannot be sued.

Sorry, I am trying to educate you that simply supplying s link does not granmt our permission to post the image. From the sites terms of use statement:

What is Copyright Infringement?

To simplify this question, copyright infringement occurs when you do certain things with a creative work which someone else produced without first getting the proper permission.

Some examples of copyright infringement (this is only a partial listing) can include:

Placing a photograph or creative work online without proper permission.
Using a creative work commercially.
Adapting a creative work of one medium to another, such as making a book into a movie or a photograph into a painting.
Modifying or editing a creative work without proper permission.

How Can I Avoid Infringing on Someone's Copyright?

The best way to avoid infringing on the rights of another creative person is to use your skill, talent and imagination to create your own completely original work. When we use the word 'original' we don't mean that you must come up with an idea which hasn't been used before, when used in copyright matters "original" means that you created your work without referencing or deliberately copying anyone else's work during the process.

Ensure that all parts of your work, both visual and audio, are your own original creations. If you have used materials which are owned by other people or companies make certain that you have obtained proper permission or licensing for the use before you place your work online.

What Sort of Things are Copyrighted?

The easy answer to this question is that just about any creative work you might find should be considered to be copyrighted by default.

A work is not required to have a copyright statement printed on it or near it in order to be considered copyrighted so do not assume that the work is unprotected simply because you cannot see a notice written anywhere.

Also do not confuse the fact that a work is publicly available with the idea that it is public domain or free for use. Being easy to find on the internet does not affect a work's copyrighted status.
