and elsewhere:


It is the exact same shirt. Maybe the one on Amazon is also Vomaria's and they decided to try it in the derby?

Their entire woot shirt collection is also available on threadless https://vomaria.threadless.com so maybe they have a special deal with woot to allow this.

It's one thing to sell it in both places, with permission. It's another to enter it into a contest against other people when it's for sale already.

That still doesn't permit derby entries on sale at another site. It is odd that the catalog shirts are also for sale on there. "less exclusive" contract maybe?

I was surprised to see the book reading unicorn and all the other shirts available elsewhere but i assume woot knows about it and it is allowed in their contract. The derby entry is more problematic.

Both are problematic if it's in violation of the contract signed.

- Almost all designs in the back catalog are under exclusive contract.
- All derby winners are under exclusive contracts.
- Designs that fall under a non-exclusive contract are typically labeled "transplant", such as Fishie's Hello Neighbor (which I have copies from TeeFury, TeeTurtle, and then shirt.woot).

No.1 rule of online apparel purchases: SIZING CHARTS! Unsure between standard and premium options at shirt.woot? Read more about their differences here.

Please don't assume that. Always report them.

There's a thread for that

I don't think we're suggesting the design was stolen, in this case it's the same artist, with the same designs on both sites (woot, and threadless).

I still believe that woot would like to hear about any double dipping. Since you do not know the arrangement, you should not assume it is right or wrong... Report and let woot decide. Historically, they have been pretty zealous about their products.

Agreed, just wanted to be clear on how this was being characterized.

If double dipping is now allowed for the $1k payout, I have a ton of designs to submit.

Hello everyone. The Amazon one is mine, the others are copycats. I don't submit frequently to the Derby, so, my fault to send something already for sale. The Unicorn one is already removed.

We are communicating with the appropriate parties about this issue. We haven't changed the rules of our exclusive contract and will address this and any other violations as we come across them.
