Re: Hi Cuttie!



The art here is far beyond the kawaii standard - well done! Though, if I wore this to the gym (my usual place to display Woot T Art), I would probably get either laughed at, or challenged to a feat of strength I couldn't win. But - it's so PRETTY!

It's not about a woman being the center of the design that bothers me, and if you think that's what I meant, there's a communication issue. I feel that the only reason that person is a woman is because he wanted sexiness. He wanted a hot emo sex kitten. She's there for the same reason that we don't see topless men bending over in car ads.



I wouldn't be comfortable wearing a shirt with a character dressed like this, but it has more to do with what I consider appropriate to be worn in public. I realize I do have more conservative ideas about dress than the general populous, though.

Thanks for the support everyone! I did a google search for cheese shirt before posting to make sure this wouldn't happen too. Oh wells. Maybe my new design will do well - see my sig.

And I'm glad to see it's done it's job in those regards.



And so it did. Probably the only shir tin this derby I'd actually wear (said the owner of the 'Quick Brown Fox' while hanging her head in shame...).

The argument you are looking for is whether TRIBUTES are legal, not plagiarism.



Tributes are legal with parody. This has no parody. Hence it is plagiarism. Simple as that.

Re: Whales. Save Them. DO IT!



I think this would be a bit better if the location of the words "Save Them" and "Whales" were swapped. so it naturally read "Whales! Save Them" rather than "Save Them Whales!"

OK, REALLY??? This idea is Tooo funny if you've been shirt.Wooting for any length of time. Does no one have the time and/or bollocks to take it on? I'm starting to think a certain shirt.woot commentator has become an establishment institution no one dare challenge. Really? REALLY? O, damn-ed antidisestablishmentarianism! Somebody re-draw and submit the fewkin thing, already. I don't want a cent, just the opportunity to say my name was on the frickin' thing. Because this idea is Woot GOLD, I tell ya - GOLD! Aside from the collateral vote/purchase from the masses, the entire population of RAMYB/Seki fans will flock to have one of these. YES! They Will!

You might want to take your own advice. Let's take this at face value. You joined two months ago so you know literally nothing about the site before that. You assume you know this designer's motivations. You assume you know their history. You also assume that you know my history and motivations at this site. You also assume you know anything about IP which you clearly don't. A simple read through of any literature on IP, derivative works, parody, etc. contradicts nearly everything you've said on the matter. What I don't need to assume is that you're trolling because you are.

(Sorry, Thunder Things, I had meant to leave it at the previous comment since it's not worth arguing with those whose defense is "you hate the artist," but a feel at least a rebuttal is warranted and I have nothing further to say on that particular matter)

@mrwednesday et al.

As someone who knows something about patenting designs (fairly similar to media) this is definitely NOT BY ANY MEANS infringement. I'm not even sure why you people are arguing about the definition of "plagiarism" when it's not a legally-defined term. You don't sue someone for plagiarism, you sue them for infringement of your rights as a copyright etc. holder.

Plagiarism is a broad term used generally by academia, since such institutions are designed for the creation and dissemination of ideas. As such, plagiarism is defined by each institution along with a set of consequences for violating their rules on the subject. Note that this has absolutely nothing to do with the corporate world and the concept of infringement, where one party has to have some form of legal backing confirming them as the copyright etc. holder. Hence, any arguments about this shirt plagiarizing are utterly pointless and have no consequence whatsoever.

tl;dr:
Woot is not an institution that defines or recognizes plagiarism outside of what gets rejected. This design has not been rejected, therefore it DOES NOT PLAGIARIZE.

Topless men in car ads? Why aren't they wearing manly Daisy Dukes? Yo, bring 'em on!

I'm sorry - I don't mean to belittle your concern, but I think age has given me a perspective you may lack (as much as I may lament admitting the 'age' thing).
Drakxxx and (I assume, forgive me if I'm wrong) Crescent Debris are males. Males like females. It's not intentionally sexist, or in any way meant to belittle. They represent what, to them, is pretty/beautiful/vulerable/hot/sexy... Basically, what works for them. There are times I do get put off by some over-the-top piece that puts a woman in a peril position - the victim pose. But these days, I can appreciate a female character - no matter how idealized - in the power position.
If you look at it this way: It's kinda cute to watch them figure out we're the bosses.
(For further clarification, I'm not that shallow/maneating, but there are moments...)

Re: Clubbing Revisited



No. I think I get the intent, but - I am a proponent of wildlife protection, as well as saving other earthly resources. I simply could not wear a shirt that, on the surface, made me appear to WANT to club a baby seal. There are far too many literal-minded folk out there who might hate me for it - or worse - agree with the surface message!
Noooo - I have too little faith in the mental agility of my fellow (wo)man.

It maybe doesn't plagiarize yet, but based on woots past rulings this is plagiarism and will get rejected. It also infringes on rights so there's really no way to win.

Also on a more technical note, plagiarism is defined by the institution and committing the act depends on that definition not whether or not you get caught. If you copy and paste a term paper together it's plagiarized whether or not the teacher catches you.
