Threadless! Someone in sweden is ripping off your design!


Found this this morning. I'm guessing they haven't payed you OR Nestor for that matter for this.
Not well-versed in copyright to know whether or not the poor grammar and that shawdy artwork "rescues" this from taking legal action or not.


Shirt and site here.

OH SHIT, I feel so honored. I know it's a bad thing to be getting rip off but it's worst when no one gives a damn about your ideas.

Oh, another one - that's awful (I was randomly linked to the site early this morning, didn't have the time to browse it) My fingers itch to write about the ripping off-thing on their facebook.

I'm sure that legally, those designs are altered enough to pass, but feck, it's wrong.

It's so weird how a nation that used to consist of vikings have turned out to become that most -afriad-of-conflict and neutral country in the world. It would be an easy win.

Regular thing happening on the internet wild. Few days ago i saw a rip off of a classic right in a store here near my city, and it wasn't the first time. Unfortunately i didn't bring any cameras nor signed the names of the companies.

Actually, i think part of this rip off thing could be stopped simply not allowing to download the previews of designs right here in the site. But maybe wouldn't be enough.

they could just use the "print the screen" option

The only way to stop someone from stealing a design would be to never design it in the first place.

Left an angry comment on their FB about copyright on one of Alex' designs.

That sucks. After I had "Happiness is so once upon a time" printed... at TL...Charlotte Russe printed my quote. They removed it years ago. Now it is all over the internet. It happens.
