when you make something that contains entirely characters, peoples likenesses from photos you didnt take, someones writing (the list, that is a scriptwriters output), and overall show concepts, and put it out publically for sale and try to associate it with something that ABC is already doing themselves, you are waving a big giant red blood-in-the-water flag in an ocean of people-in-charge paying very very close attention. and "not for profit" has no standing in copyright, but its a moot point, because the intent here is some kind of profit.

Daniel is completely correct. Just finished a course on Copyright Law (damn you law degree!) and the main point is that this guy is selling these for a profit. That's a big deal, because ABC owns the copyright to all of these characters, stories, logos, etc. And when someone uses them, and clearly LABELS them as Charlie, DriveShaft, etc....that's copyright infringement. Now, copyright infringement has no actual definition in the Constitution, but if ABC ever wanted to sue this guy they could. And they would win easily.
To anyone who is going to the gallery tomorrow: take tons of pictures and post them here! Really wish I could go, but I live on the East Coast and have finals all this week. Take extra pics of Daniel's piece and Slater's piece! Missed out on those unfortunately.
