Just Had Someone Steal my work on Zazzle... and it's Kinda Big
There's a LOT to this one.
Back in 2007, I decided it would be cool to have a piece I had done earlier go out into the world and speak for people who were censored. The piece was called "Government Censorship: Protecting YOU From Reality". It was an obvious parody of the Parental Advisory sticker, and at first I wasn't happy with how it looked. It took a while for it to grow on me, and I decided to put it on my Zazzle account to try and sell a few posters, and an image of it was posted on my website.
So on December 2nd, I decided to just check how my stuff was doing on Zazzle. I did a search with the name of my image and noticed that my piece was showing up on something I didn't create. Shocked, I checked it out and, lo and behold, someone else was selling it!
Andy, you're the one who came up with "Mean People Suck"?
No, a friend gave it to me and he didn't tell me till six months after i started making them that it was from a NOFX song. They never seemed to mind, hell we still print for Fat Wreck and still print stickers for NOFX. I came up with a bunch of other ones like the "if you're not outraged..." one.
I was ever really mad about the bootleggers of mean people suck since mainly its a common phrase and it was a nofx song lyric, i was only pissed when they ripped off the look of my stickers,
