    An Amusing Copyright Violation - Products Sold on Sears.com

    You may not actually see what is going on at first, but apparently this "Carson Collection" took a porn image someone made of the game Kirby, and well...

    That's not drooling or eating D:

    Just thought this would amuse people that Sears decided to sell this product.

    it seems i can not access the site at all, maybe it is blocked here... (we have internet censorship here, mainly for porn sites but nothing would surprise me)

    Sears is a major retailer in the US they also own K-Mart. I guess you're being censored from online shopping. They sell clothes and household good along with electronics.

    http://chanarchive.org/content/2_v/1...6943844513.png Can you see this link? It's a screencap of the product. NSFW.

    I should note the image they're using (for the products) is without permission of another artist.

    Whatever do you mean Arshes? Clearly as the product's title suggests, he is just drooling while eating. Get your mind out of the gutter.

    How is Sears still backing this product. It's copyright infringement and pornography geared towards children at the same time. I hope they never catch on, because this is classic.

    The human race's most endearing trait is being clueless and gullible when presented with a new way of making money, which makes its other, much more obnoxious, traits at least tolerable. It allows us to laugh on the long slope to hell...

    Indeed, that's what Sears gets for allowing right-click monkeys to sell bootleg merchandise on their site. I actually hope they get nailed for it as some people have said their orders have gone through. That's hoping for too much but oh well.

    Sears says it was a third party Vendor that was the problem.

    But you can see the images through various searches. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/search_10...+dedede&vName=

    I put in "Dedede" for example. All those images are copyright violations since I'm quite sure they didn't get the rights to use those images.

    Small comfort since it was seen on their site. No more than I care about the manufacturing plant when McDonald's serves me a tainted burger that kills my family
