What a bunch of sad pathetic low lives. Hope they end up having to pay everyone for all the money they made off of their brands/logos and such illegally.

Check this out. That was the 10th comment on the Tankman shirt.

I wonder if it's legit, or if it's just someone trying to scare them. Hmm...

They also stole the whole "RUN DMC" design of a shirt, but replaced it wih utter nonsense.

not sure if this counts as Stealing though.

I doubt that it is a legitimate plaintiff.

A "legit" plaintiff would not be posting their threats on the website's comment section - they would just go ahead and file suit. And their attorney would likely tell the plaintiff to stay the hell away from the defendant, and to never engage them in communication of any sort.

Plus, in a situation like this, there aren't any "authorities" to contact. It's not like copyright infringement is a criminal matter, and the police will break down their doors to haul them off to jail - if the site is to face any liability, it would be a civil lawsuit.

Jordan may have some sort of Invasion of Privacy claim for appropriation of his name/picture for personal or commercial advantage - but I think NBA players license their rights to the NBA for photographs taken during sporting events.

So the NBA would also be interested.

You're right, the Tankman shirt's gone. Although its page still exists 'cos I was just on it.

They're probably waiting for all this shit to blow over before they put it back up again, and they still have NG's guy on their wholesale page.

This is really pathetic on how much stolen content was found, not just from this site, but from many others. I know it's been brought up, but Johnny, are you going to be filing charges or is newgrounds in general? I'm just curious to know where the staff stands on this and what actions will be taken.

Haha, putting it back up after shit blows over, they'll be lucky to even keep any of the money they made with the copyrighted content on their site.

Just left this in the comments on the Tankman shirt:

Maybe it's time you try creating something of your own, rather than ripping off other people's creativity like an asshole. Everyone whose intellectual property you have stolen has been contacted and alerted to the situation, and all your social media outlets have been notified of your business practices. Have fun with all those court cases you'll undoubtedly be seeing in the coming days.

Happy July 4th.

It's the ending that's beautiful. Now to go put it on the rest of his stuff.

So I just contacted Universal Pictures, Dos Equis, and the NBA about the infringement on their trademarks and copyrights. And I contacted the Mighty Ducks this morning. All companies with incredibly large legal departments. If you're going to swing, swing for the fences.

The countdown on that company being sued into oblivion starts... now.

Holy shit, really? Stealing from a veterans association? That's fucking shameful. Just sent AmVets an email about it too.

Who knows, maybe I'll get a kickback for tipping them all off and I'll be able to afford to finish my novel. A guy can dream.

You just reminded me though: I need to contact Ken at popehat so he can maybe blog about this. Seems right up his alley.
