You think he is the one who blew the whistle?

At this point I don't even care. we truly didn't expect our first group buy to turn out like this haha.

I don't mind if imsto makes totoro keycaps but I do mind if hes using the image I worked hard on.
I honestly just want an explanation as to why he did this.
We contacted imsto(he was online when we pmed him) and he seems to have logged off now.
Hopefully I'll hear back from him soon.

It's fine we've learned our lesson. If imsto replies that's great. If he doesn't, well its not like I can do much about it.
Thanks to all for the great support throughout the group buy while it lasted though! Truly appreciate it!

I'd also like to apologize to all the mini groupbuy organizers that were working hard on gathering orders for this groupbuy.

All you have to do is get legal permission from the copyright owner. Very easy to do usually and of no cost (likely).

A little different when it is copyright Disney...

They have a track record of not letting anyone use anything, ever.

Thank you for the formal apology. The groupbuy will not continue but I'm just glad that this has been cleared up.

Because the US supplier considers the design a copyrighted image, and they won't reproduce it.

I see, factories in US or EU or SP will not make these kind of logos with copyright.  but people usually like those logos with copy right...

That is the point (for the most part) of copyrighting something: to protect something you consider valuable to you or others. It's a good thing if someone likes their logo to them, you just have to go through them to get it.

I mean, it ain't over till the fat lady sings, but if history is any indication, Disney has never let anyone use their intellectual property before.

It's saddening that. Can't even operate clandestinely to get this going lol.

How do artists create paintings and prints to sell of various intellectual properties? I think if it is changed enough of a percentage than it is an artist rendition and is legal. I would think that the small custom design also being on a key cap would be enough of a change unlike other attempted keys that were an exact duplicate of logos or prior art.

Funny because looks like some company in China went ahead and started manufacturing these in thick dye sub. And they look quite good too. lol

:\ Yes it's been officially dead and we had no plans on restarting it. We did not give anybody permission to use our image. If you find any stores selling them please provide a link. It'll help us out alot!
