I woke up this morning to discover that I'm an amazingly popular artist. Over the last month I've sold hundreds of t-shirts on Ebay.
Unfortunately, these are all pirated.
Apparently, a clothing company or distributor in Germany is printing up my designs wholesale. One webstore, Gray Matter EU, pulled the shirts and blamed "some designer" they refused to identify for stealing the logos. When I asked about compensation they clammed right up and have refused to respond.
A second German company, Skull City, has just ignored my email.
I'm a pretty upbeat person by nature, but things like this just send me into a rage. I give my stuff away. I encourage people to take it for their own use. All I ask in return is that I get some compensation for commercial use.
Update: Derp! An emailer pointed out that I should include a link to the shirts I actually do sell. Right now you can use code ZSPOOKYSCARY to get 15% off everything.
