Teechip have stolen all my art from my Threadless online store.

12 original artworks that Teechip has for sale on different products from T shirts to mugs to bags etc on hundreds of products.

https://www.threadless.com/discover/s/ploppi

They tell people who have had their art stolen to fill in an online form with their personal details name address online signature whatever that is. Which they then pass on to the copyright thief.

Once Teechip acknowledges that the art is actually stolen. I asked Teechip if they forward the information they have to the copyright owner and Teechip said they cannot do that. They merely delete the information and item with stolen art on it.

Hmm I wonder why Teechip uses that tactic and deletes all the info?

When Teechip finds out it has been selling and sending out fake goods it manufactures. fake goods as in T shirts etc which has stolen art on it.

Does Teechip notify the buyers and issue a refund?

Does Teechip keep all of the money generated from these sales itself?

Teechip has ripped off numerous artists in the same way and my theory is, it is Teechip behind the copyright theft. It is just a theory so it is not libellous. Not that I care.

You seem to have a huge chip on your shoulder, probably due to some form of attention seeking thing.

My post was to see if Teechip had stolen other artists art as well. Also to see if maybe there are people on this forum familiar with Teechip and with copyright law, in particular regarding Teechip hiding behind the "safe harbour" excuse and regarding DMCA takedown notices via Teechip online form or via direct contact with Teechip copyright team and legal dept.

As I mentioned style cannot be copyrighted.

Original art is automatically copyrighted.

Stencil artists like Banksy and others make art in a similar style to Blek. Graffiti writers make art in graffiti style.

Style is not the issue, there is nothing to stop people making original art in whatever style they choose.

I understand that Plopper is alleging theft. However, I think his position is undermined by his assumption that anyone would want his fudge.
