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.

Actually it's more along the lines of https://stayfreshclothing.com/
They did have pine trees on their website, but it seems they sold out.

Mob Mentality Ho!

Seriously, I don't approve what they're doing but spamming their pages with half assed comments doesn't really give you any glory. Don't any of you have anything better to do anyway? " OH FUCK YEAH LET'S DO THIS, YOU'RE DEALING WITH AN INTERNET BADASS HERE "

Notify any remaining organizations and let what comes come.

That's exactly what we're doing, right Dimono? We're still waiting for replies on the ones already contacted.
Also, should I contact the Gators about this? This one has their colors and is labled "Gator" but I couldn't find any similar designs.

This thread is 8 pages long. How much of it do you REALLY think is necessary? This could have been handled with much less fuss and people wetting their pants with the thought of " going into battle "
