It gives me absolute FITS that copyright is even thrown around by the artists on this site. The first thing they run to is "pop-culture". They make money off of other people's, more creative people's hard work and vision. How DARE anyone bring up copyright! Pop-culture does not give you an excuse for lazy creation. I challenge woot to throw out ANY and ALL references to anything that has ever been seen before. They won't do it, because they're here to make money and the artists are more than willing to play along. So much talent here, incredible skills going to waste feeding the mindless public. That's my rant. You have my vote just because you pointed that fact out. I'm off to peruse the interwebs for the latest trend...gotta make a buck.

Re: Disney Crest

Oh, and please excuse my blanket statement. Obviously, I don't mean ALL of the artists. I'm done. Bye!

It is one thing to be inspired by art from other places. And parody is allowed in some cases. But when you use actual trademarked logos and such, it is against Section 12 of the Terms and Conditions you agreed to when you submitted this to Woot. "12. Artist Representations. Artist represents and warrants that he/she has the right to enter into this Agreement, that the Artwork is original and has not been previously used commercially, and shall not infringe upon or violate any copyright, or any other personal or proprietary right of any kind of any third party. Artist indemnifies Woot, its officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns, against any and all losses, expenses (including attorney’s reasonable fees), or damages arising out of any breach of Artist’s warranties, representations, and obligations hereunder."

Woot may not get around to rejecting this if it doesn't get many votes, but you can be sure that they will not print this, since Disney's lawyers would make mincemeat of them.

rant all you want.
It's okay. Thank you for the vote. ^^
The only reason I entered this is because there are no good shirts with Oswald on them.
I love this site because it helps fans get better shirts for their favorite shows/movies/games. Plus it's a good way to bring things back from the dead that shirts don't even exist for in the first place.

Damn... :C
I'm afraid you're right.
I should have gone with Ninja Turtles. ><

Oh well. I'll leave it in just to see how many like it.

Please don't mistake my remark as disdain for the topic. I would LOVE some Disney themed shirts myself. (mostly because I find most official Disney shirts garish) This shirt is different from other shirts because they only reference pop culture. Your shirt is not a reference, it's a copy. You can't use Luke Skywalker on a shirt, but you can use a kid Luke because Lucas has never used or copyrighted kid Luke. References are protected under parody laws, but copies are not. In other words, you can draw a rabbit that looks like Oswald, but you cannot draw Oswald or his lucky ass will sue you.

Please submit more Disney shirts, but make sure its a parody, not a copy.

Yes Sir C:

I'll do better next time.
*note to self... no outlines* -_-'
I was a bit brain dead with the whole crest idea. Hopefully the next topic doesn't leave me stump.

By the way... is there any way we users can make suggestions for Derbies?
