Bonanza's already taken down the shirt from their store; we're waiting on Ebay now. Fingers crossed! Even if only one of the big copyright holders flex a bit of muscle, there should be some entertaining fireworks. As far as I know, the Beeb, Warner Brothers, SyFy, Disney, Hasbro and Paramount have all been contacted directly so far, along with Ebay and his various hosting sites. We'll see.

Well, I'll be hornswaggled! I can't believe someone would stoop so low as to steal your work, Rich. I also can't believe that he's weak-minded enough to believe that he could get away with it without someone in the rather insular Doctor Who fan community noticing said plagiarism.

It's a good thing you said to not send him viruses, as my evil side might be tempted to come out and release so many digital horrors upon him that he might never recover. I'm sure your better half (who has knowledge of such things) knows of which I speak.

Rich, we're all behind you on this and this bozo will never sell another piece of merchandise when it all comes to light. What a jerk!!

Supportively,
Eric

Ditto on that.

I have to wonder how tiny this pinhead's brain is. He/she/it didn't even bother to try and hide the fact it was obviously someone else's work.

Construction lines are the same, hair lines are the same, the ear and nose lines are the same, and the only difference was playing with the contrast levels in photoshop (probably to enchance the fine lines for the T-shirt printing). It would be like stealing your neighbours car, disguising it by hanging fuzzy dice from the mirror, and then trying to sell it back to him.

And looking at his/her/its site - I wonder if Mr "Sue em" Lucas knows about his Obi-Wan shirt, or the BBC knows about his Dr Who stuff he is selling.

so were the shadows behind the Doctor his pas incarnations? if that’s the 11th, why am i only counting 8 shadows?

Also: on # 11 now Doctor! Only two more to go!

Anyone else notice that the Doctors appearance seems to get younger and younger the older he gets? Mid life crisis anyone?

A friend of mine once wanted me to create a website that would showcase his art yet prevent people from downloading the images. Unfortunately, that's not really possible. You can make the images too small to be of interest (which also makes them too small for anyone to be impressed by) or overlay a watermark across the picture, or use code to hide the download option, but the sad fact is that once the image is on someone's computer, they have it to do as they please. Legally they can't distribute it or use it, but technically nothing can stop them.

The Internet is akin to the old West. It's a lawless territory where rules are broken on a regular basis and no one's really sure who the sheriff is.

I'm guilty of distributing someone else's work myself. I run a website dedicated to old men's magazines from the 40's to the 70's, and I have complete issues available for download. My saving grace is that the copyright holders don't really care about 40 year old pornography and really have no interest in republishing it. I don't include the ones that do care (Playboy & Penthouse mostly), and I don't sell it or make any kind of profit. If any copyright holder were to ask me to take their property down, I would do it in a heartbeat. As it stands, I've heard from artists, writers, and even models who appeared in the mags and none has expressed more than "this takes me back some years".

Rich's case, of course, is quite different. He CAN'T sell it without the BBC's permission, but neither can the bozo emeritus selling the T-Shirt with Rich's work on it. Even if he had the Beeb's permission, he doesn't have Rich's permission, which is something else entirely.

I was over to look at the bad guy's blog. Football is on and I'm kinda bored and I don't have a video game I feel like playing or really anything I feel like doing tonight as we just had our fall barbeque yesterday and all the cooking and cleaning that implies. Plus, cold medicine always makes me loopy. But I digress, frequently and at great length. For instance, just the other day I was telling a friend of mine about how our chicken hatch was going and I didn't get the number 11 out for over an hour of the conversation. Instead, I talked for a while about my poor duck who is having issues that are unmentionable in mixed company, but whose prescription ointment caused some comment at the barbeque when the label was read by our guests. For: Richard (AV). Apply to ***** twice daily.

Anyway, I tend to think the guy is a little misinformed. (If not entirely off his rocker, which is neither here nor there. I had to read his post and the one after a couple of times to "get it" which really doesn't say a thing about my attention spa---oooh, a butterfly!) The web does make it possible for more theft to occur, but it also provides such neat things as date stamps, especially if you are posting on some one else's website, like, say, DeviantART.

Anyway, I think there is a chance that something I just said made sense and wasn't just me channelling Cap'n Fang.

I've known some one, btw, who had whole web pages stolen with very minor adjustments to the layout. We proved it with upload dates on the server. This works until you change servers, generally, but if you do take something down or move to another server and lose your date stamp there is always Internet Wayback Machine.
