Copyright Issues

This is the worst day.

Yesterday I got a letter from the German department of public prosecution that contained a really bad message.

I'm denounced for violating copyright laws in my artwork. The fact that I’m taking commissions and draw characters that look slightly similar to stuff that already exists was one reason. The issue is, that I’m earning money with other people’s properties.

Another point was, that my comic is a copy of many known videogames and movies such like Avatar or Bioshock. They even added a statement from James Cameron who just started a petition against me.

They’re forcing me to remove my comic and 90% of my gallery now and told me to close commissions as a legal restraint. Still, I have to pay 120000$ now and I can’t even take commissions to pay a lawyer. I’m fucked.

Luckily they let me draw a few things that won’t get me in trouble, like Ponies and Sonic recolors. I’m so happy about that.

 

By the way. I started a petition against James Cameron’s petition. Please help me and sign it.
