Hilarious in a way, kind of reminds me of some art thieves who find and print out artwork, put them on canvases and claim it to be their own original work. In either case, this isn't cool at all, profiting off of another person's work at all without their consent is a dick move.
I wish this would come in the news.
Faded sued by Newgrounds for not being fresh at all.

Do you think they would go on Judge Judy? I don't love her all that much, but I still remember what she did to that Ebay scammer.

You guys should seriously consider suing, not just for yourselves but for everyone else who have been ripped off by this bogus site, as well.

I'm sure those other corporations lawyers (like the mighty ducks) will give them a good raping when they find out.

We could spam the shit out of their webpage, or Jeff could simply email a cease and desist letter to them.

Calling a thief out online is fun and all, but nothing scares a company quicker than a threatened suit on the horizon.

I think you calling them a "company" is being generous.

I mean a pack of retards aren't usually smart enough to start a legitimate company.

Pretty agreeable statement. Also will be hilarious to see how they respond to the case and desist letter...

I kinda want them to ignore it, just so they can get sued.
