i was given a link from a kind deviant today linking me to a website where i guess people can make t-shirts and sell them on their own.  and apparently this guy is taking deviant art work and putting them on these shirts.… my little robot snafu was used.  anyways, if you have an account with this site, please let the admins know or at least let this sad soul know that we know what he's doing.  it's unfortunate that people need to steal art to make a profit from it.  ass holes will be ass holes i guess.  anyways, make sure you check the guy's shirts to make sure that none of your work, or the work of someone you know is being stolen as well.

for those wondering exactly which one of mine was taken.  here's the shirt:… and heres a link to the art i did almost four years ago:…

UPDATE:  i contacted eric yohay of the finroo website and he has taken action to take down the art as well as retrieve the shirts already sold and suspend the user that stole the artwork.  by no means is finroo or eric at fault for any of this and it's awesome that they moved as swiftly as they did to get this issue resolved.  i have a feeling that more of this person's shirts are stolen from other artists, but it's difficult to figure out what belongs to who.  so if you do know, make sure you report it!  thanks to finroo and eric for such a quick response and quicker action on the matter!

I told a guy who had his stuff stolen by that guy (:iconshelde5000:) and he said that DC's lawyers were set up to gang-rape that thief if he didn't remove the stolen stuff.

I was advised once by a copyright lawyer to write a formal note of cease and desist before proceeding with any legal works. I suggest consulting a lawyer, and stop this miss use of your work
