Honestly, If you want it to stop, legal action is the best way. Unless you sue, the design might be off for a while, but It'll come back sooner or later. Sue them.

I just got a reply from P&G, who owns Tide. They're passing it on to the relevant people.

Faded, I feel so bad for what's coming your way...But not really.

I have a funny feeling that all they're gonna get is a cease and desist letter and they'll stop, drop, and roll like the good little absent minded people that they are.

I'm impressed with how fast they responded. That wasn't even sort of original it was blatantly stolen though.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm going to contact the other companies they stole from. Might as well get that site taken down.

DiMono and I have already contacted all the companies mentioned here. If you check the last couple pages, you'll see the responses from most of them.

I dont think someone without any rights to something can sue someone over it.

There's a lot of paperwork and things to do before someone can sue.

Don't worry, I'm sure Tom and Wadolf have gotten to sorting through the hundreds of horribly misspelled PMs from people trying to be internet heroes.

I would assume Tom and Wade are. It honestly doesn't matter that they took the shirt down, if I were Tom I would also try to get all the profit they made off of it. If they're worried about the money, then sue for legal fees as well.

Basically nothing. Tide's been added to the mega lawsuit-they also completely took the shirt off their site. Other than that, nothing but a bunch of shitposts.

I just read all 17 pages of this thread. I rock.
As much as I love you all for proving you slobbering cunts can actually work as a coherent community from time to time, there is one little question I'm pondering about the target company: Are they really based in Florida?

If they have an actual shop there, then that makes things real easy, but if not (like if they just do mail orders over the phone / internet), how do we know the company's address is actually a real address and not some random mailbox they rented out from China or some shit?

I dunno if the same legal loopholes exist in America (and I'm not visiting FADED's website for answers, out of not wanting to give them the web traffic and / or not having any reason to trust whatever it says on the matter), but here in the UK, lots of Chinese fakers register postal addresses that are literally just postboxes as business locations, with the actual factories being in fuck-knows-where with little to no traceability.

Why's this important? Legal proceedings are notoriously hard to pursue across borders, especially when it comes to copyright infringement. And even if this company gets shut down, if the real source of the plagiarism isn't gotten rid of, they can (and usually do) just become a 'phoenix company', i.e: a company which will declare bankruptcy in response to legal action, dissolve, and then re-appear under a different name not 6 weeks later. The impossibilities involved in tracing overseas companies who do this make any attempt to shut them down for good futile without the help of the government of the nation they're actually in... which is rarely guaranteed.

I'll be happy to join you all in pissing in the face of another worthless company if and when I see some proof that this isn't just going to turn into an endless game of sweatshop whack-a-mole.

But either way, this shit was a fun read from start to finish, so props to everyone who made it what it is. Including the tards and obvious alts. :D
