Not cool.

While Googling myself (don't judge), I found this site selling my "Talking Penguin" on apparel without authorization. They even helped themselves to the Threadless model photos.


I already let Threadstaff know, but you guys might want to check in case there are other Threadless designs there I didn't recognize... saw the the ninja cat, and I just noticed the clown puking a rainbow there too...

Yeah, it's great if you want a shirt with Robbie Williams on it and a Jagermeister watch from a single store.

haha, right - it's one thing to take $$ out of my pocket (or Threadless' pocket), but it's another thing to have me associated with designs you'd get at a Times Square souvenir shop...

where do you get the threadless model photos? they do a shoot for the tees that are printed, but they also have blank ones available for mocking up somewhere i think... not sure where anymore, but i bet someone else on the blogs will chime in and point you directly to it...

Mexiblunt

Oh well, look at the bright side, out of all the things they could steal they thought yours was worth the risk!

lalelushirts

yeah I mean those to mock up. In the template section when uploading there are only tee-templates, none with actual people..

is a ukraine site it appears, you might not get a response from them? pilfering is unfortunately common in some countries like that

lalelushirts: not sure where they are myself, but for sure someone on the blogs has a link or something... hoping someone will chime in, or if you start a new thread about it someone will hook you up! anyone?

If it's on the internet some people will think they can take it for free and get away with it. It'd be nice if we could round them all up, put them in a canon and fire them into space!

update: just revisited the site that's been "borrowing" designs. i think they removed talking penguin, the ninja cat, and the clown puking a rainbow.

so maybe the threadless legal team went over there and threw some elbows?

but now the sneaky f-ers have whiskey tango foxtrot on their site: http://barmanshop.com.ua/product/futbolka-whiskey-tango-foxtrot/

The bastards. Curiously they went through the trouble of putting an outline on WTF. It's like they're almost trying to be legit!

:-)

another question, besides of that shameful go-and-fuck-someone-over mentality... Do their shirts and stuff not look awkwardly pixelated and so on because they do not have the original file?

hershel

^ does their stuff....look..." arrr..forgive ze crab for ze bad grammar, ze crab haz stopped to care abouta grammar

herschel: you're prob right... i certainly didn't give them a file.

morkki: haha, right! that was their take-away from a company (apparently) catching them stealing designs... you still have the balls to steal from them again, but you make an insignificant change.
