    Here we go again!!! Get the pitchforks..fire the torches...bring the rope!

    seriously WTF!!!! Nothing like an art thief with a portfolio containing MB Art to provide free entertainment and a little torch and forkfest. This is the same guy who was stealing phil straubs work a while back. still at it.


    http://monkeys555.deviantart.com/gallery/

    http://futureweapons.daportfolio.com/

    hahahaha. What do you think? Time for a good bbq!


    Officially DeviantArt is getting a letter from our legal to force his removal from that site and we will be requesting his private user information from them through legal means so he can be met with and helped to understand the error of his ways. Art theft is not tolerated. Has been a while though huh?

    User Monkey555
    other known alias: killerpotato

    Unofficially, if you have a deviant art account feel free to say hello.

    It seems that the Torrent bannings havent been updated since the 5th. I guess it was about overdue for some idiot to do something this stupid.

    Has he been trying to make money with the art or is he only claiming that it is his?

    having not met Jason in person the only mental image I have is of him angry is that of Animal playing drums. And that is not a happy camper. Feel the righteous fury of the Muppets.

    The user has been terminated.


    funny that the search for the word banned has this come up right away. how appropriate.




    Let's just say that a really nasty cease and desist letter to deviant art, suggesting further action, for illegally using copyrighted images to sell their high priced ads can make the world move quickly.

    It's surprising how quick they can move when the heat's turned up. When someone posted half of my gallery on there a while back DA wouldn't even acknowledge my polite emails, with full evidence, asking for his removal. It was only after I, and several other people, made a fuss in the forums that he got banned. Took weeks. DA. Shithole.

    I missed all the fun.

    I'm gonna go hang my rope back up. Just watch for pitchfork....it's kind of sharp.

    Sorry about the issue Jason and Kemp, but I'm very glad that you got the stuff pulled down. Nice work.

    Deviant Art said I had to do some signed pdf and provide a bunch of evidence that it was copyright infringement. I don't have time for all that so I sent this instead and cc'd conceptart.org's primary attorney, who essentially said "Ladies and Gentlemen, I look forward to speaking to you about this in order to settle the matter."

    Here is what I wrote. This is how you handle deviantart.com

    To: violations@deviantart.com; CA ATTORNEY.;

    Subject: Immediately Cease and Desist - Copyright Infringement-DeviantArt
    selling ads prior to showcasing stolen artwork.

    Attention Deviant Art Legal and Abuse Violations:


    Please immediately cease and desist from allowing deviant art member monkey555 to showcase stolen work created by our company and cease and desist from ad revenue generation by showcasing stolen work. DeviantArt charges very high prices to the companies working with it, as advertisers and is gaining revenue on pirated materials.

    www.massiveblack.com is our site. Also, there is the video for this artwork here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlgtLXhwJSM This is the google spotlight on our company which shows the production of such work. More is available on our website.

    User monkey 555 also has an account Killerpotato and he is a repeat offender, having stolen work from Artists like Phillip Straub previously. We believe Deviant Art to be acting in bad faith by allowing such continued abuse on it's site, including selling high priced ads prior to the viewing of this work. Deviant Art must immediately CEASE AND DESIST from using such work for the creation of it's ad revenue.
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&c...zilla%3Aen-US%
    3Aofficial&hs=GgO&q=phil+straub+stolen+art&aq=f&oq =&aqi= Prior Abuse.

    We have cc'd our attorney Mr. Jeffrey Rose who will be available if you have any questions.

    Since Deviant Art is allowing repeated and continual offense, if such matters are not resolved immediately we will be requesting a meeting with DeviantArt's General Counsel. The selling of advertising prior to the showcasing of artwork stolen from our company must stop now.


    Thank you,


    Jason Manley
    President
    Massive Black Inc.



    Notice how i put attention Legal. It costs them money to get legal involved. Is easier to ban the user. Jeff then introduced himself. I did not demand his banning. I put the pressure on DA. That is where the pressure has to be. Screw being nice and polite. Companies only respond to pressure and that means spending money to deal with the problem if it is not solved.

    Man, what a letter... O_O Go, Jason! Yes, if you gotta do that, there's no shame I'd say! Sucks that DA needs a letter so strong, but they don't seem to listen well enough.

    The stuff I saw was Kemp Remillard's work (tanks and such). Looks like the guy lifted it straight off Kemp's web site.

    Haha, its nice to see this little twat purged. The art board of 4chan noticed him just as he was moving from one account to the monkey55 one, I reported many of his thefts myself but never saw a response.

    What kind of fool messes with one of the most powerful art communities on the web? hohoho.

    I think that posting a pic like that crosses over into it seeming like we are
    condoning actual physical violence against this person. It is a pretty thin line between what is or is not a joking threat and what could be considered a real one but I think
    crazy dude might want to consider removing that pic.
