What's up with this shirt? I've seen this image for the last few years: http://weknowmemes.com/2011/10/darth-vader-you-are-the-father/


Is it his original creation?

Maury is really branching out, but shouldn't the Queen be getting all up in his face about it after that?

good find xarous.

This is the same guy who submitted the pikachu shirt that got pulled But that last one was supposedly his original creation too. I don't know. We'll see if this one survives.

I think this may be the first shirt woot to ever make me literally laugh out loud.

Having some personal experience with the Maury show, I find this absolutely hilarious.

Edit: To clarify, a sibling was on the show, and it was horrible/painfully embarrassing to watch.

This is sooo great, will definitely be buying this for a friend who is a huge Maury/Star Wars fan.

Alex Solis made this a couple of years ago!

This is one of his that had over 10,000 tumblr notes last I checked. So you probably have seen it many places.

Because Alex is awesome and so is his artwork.

Looks like it is, same artist name on the threadless submission from July 2011, and the weknowmemes post is from Oct 2011, which is later.

FWIW, it's not a problem that the art was submitted to other sites before. Quite a few of the designs here at Woot were submissions at other sites too. Woot's qualification is that the design cannot be printed elsewhere before.

So put away the popcorn, folks.

You're the resident guru around here, but does this apply then?

http://shirt.woot.com/faq#q24
"If you spot a t-shirt design submission that appears to have been borrowed, copied, shamelessly stolen from some other source, or you believe a design infringes on the intellectual property rights of a third party, you can report it to your friendly derby-meisters by going to the offending design's vote page (by clicking on the design image) and clicking the red "TATTLE ON THIS" button in the upper right corner. When tattling, don't forget to provide specific examples or links to the original work."

Woot, stop trying to be like Teefury, you're better than that. Alex has tons and tons of other interesting stuff that doesn't involve Pikachu, Darth Vader, or anything else to get you in trouble. You know this, you linked to it yourself. I still want his two designs from the Psychedelic derby. (On AA, pretty please?)

While I've enjoyed this cartoon for a couple of years now, I find it rather questionable that this is the original artist, just finally getting around to submitting it to woot. There's a similar cartoon by an Alex Pardee - are they one and the same? The styles are definitely different.

Also, how does woot get away with constantly violating copyrights and trademarks?

Actually, he would be a lot older than he looks since all this happened a long time ago in a galaxy far away.

One could also say, "When 900 years you reach, look as good, you will not."

If this is the artist's own work, then no. Being that it's a daily, I hope Woot figured it out themselves, but then again, there was Pik-achoo too ...

Alex Solis is alexmdc. When he submitted the shirt to Threadless, they probably owned the rights to the design for a designated amount of time. With woot, it is either 60 or 90 days, unless they print the shirt.

It has been close to 2 years since the shirt went on Threadless, and they never printed it. Alex did not violate any rules to resubmit the design here, and woot did not break any copyright.

Yeah, I don't get the whole "every shirt is a pop culture reference" thing that seems to be going on now. I mean, yeah a couple are nice here and there but if I wanted shirts like this I'd take a time machine back to Steve & Barry's.

Easy sales. Pop-culture shirts tend to sell in greater quantities because there's an automatic appeal to the property already.

I love Alex's stuff. My favorite is the "Don't Care Bears" the first time I wore it I just happen to run into Alex at Noodles & Company

No, no, no! Not, "You are the father," but rather, "You ARE the father!" Does this designer even watch the show?

Hey dudes I did create this a few years ago and it did get all over the internet for a while got a ton of tumblr likes, and was featured in a few websites.

I was lucky that woot decided to print it, and love seeing the drama and people so quick to jump the gun and call it stolen, but again I created this, so relax and share that popcorn :D

Im not understanding why woot is continuing to use memes or artwork when the ownership is questionable. This has been around a while and theres no real way to prove who came up with it, just like the Pikachu peice. I wish they would stick to it being completly original and not able to be ound floating around tumblr, threadless, or some other site where someone can say "ohh yes this is mine". No offense to the submitter but this is the second time a submission has been questioned and its making you look bad. Why not try submitting something new if your really the person behind these ideas.

You're* => Argument invalid

Additionally, why in the world should an original artist retire a great piece like this. If it is his, it is his to do with as he likes and who are we to tell him otherwise?
