yeah alright we know.

It's bad enough seeing it being ripped and sold as some lame company's logo,
let alone being stolen and submitted to DevFart.

Who stole it from here, nonetheless stealing will always eventually circle back around to it's starting point.

On a side note, we should send them a picture with the newgrounds crew flipping them off, and have the NG tank in the middle with a noose hanging off the barrel of the tank, only to have someone hanging from the rope with "faded" on their shirt, and "lawsuit" written on the rope. I think it'd get the message through nicely.

The site appears to be another Chinese knockoff business. Look at all the copyrighted logos and characters they've stuck on their shirts.

Read the whole thread and:

I find myself guilty of buying a bracelet from them in the past. I didn't notice the tankman logo

Also wouldn't Disney get some money for the Mighty Ducks?

And another stolen thing:

I have a suspicion they're going to put it back up at some point. and then smoke some more weed and make some stupid hand gestures and wish they were black.

One thing I've learned from the last several years in business is that big companies take a LONG time to respond to things. I don't expect any replies from them until next week, if they even do; they're more likely to do what they do and leave me out of it. I did get a reply from GoDaddy telling me to contact another place instead, and I acted on that.

Maybe Newgrounds can get some money for Forsaken City!

I second this. Tom This is your chance.

I think this is probably how Faded started...

"Hey dude."
"What's up?"
"Wanna make some moneys?"
"Sure, how we going to do that?"
"First... we buy a bunch of blank shirts in varying colors!"
"Genius! What next?"
"Then we go to google images and find some logos we like..."
"Yes..?"
"Then we edit the logo in MS paint/photoshop and replace their brand name with ours!!"
"Uhm... what is our brand name?"
"FADED of course! Fresh All Day Every Day!"
"Oh... couldn't we get into legal trouble for selling content that we haven't asked for permission to use?"
"Nonsense! People do it all the time, no one will do anything about it and if they decide to take legal action against us we can just ignore them."
"Sounds good to me. Let's get started with our bootleg business."

This is some interesting stuff going on.

Though I'm surprised that the website hasn't been taken down yet.

It's just a guy wearing snow goggles. Newgrounds didn't invent snow goggles, did they? I swear you guys are almost as stupid as the occupy wallstreet mob and just as thuggish. If I were them, I would actually be suing this site for harassment due to admins encouraging hate. That right there, would turn the lawsuit inside out. Good job morons, good job.

Haha, what? Yeah, identical images don't count for anything. I wonder whether it's any coincidence that the company behind doing all of this is based in Florida, and you're listed as being in Florida in your profile.
