Tracking all the different NFT marketplaces to make sure your work is protected would be more than a full-time job. Instead, sign up for DeviantArt Protect to receive automatic alerts and takedown forms if your work is infringed upon. With Protect Protocol, you can also look up the status of an NFT before purchasing in order to make sure it wasn't minted without the artist's knowledge or permission.
