Art theft has become a major problem in the world of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) as grifters look to make a quick buck from the works of others. The nature of the online goods means it's very difficult to confirm who owns the NFTs being sold and if the sellers have the legal right to sell that work on any platform. Progress on a solution has been slow, but it does appear new tactics from hosting companies like DeviantArt are working. DeviantArt recently implemented a new system designed to help identify stolen artwork in the wild by using machine learning to locate works that may have been stolen. It's even able to detect subtle variations in stolen artwork, including if an image is cropped, flipped or slightly altered to avoid traditional image detection systems.
