I wish you had this available on Etsy or something. Every time I see it in Hot Topic I sigh and wish I could have a print of it. I want it on my wall so badly!

I feel kinda bad about having the shirt that has this print on it... The shirt was a gift and I was really happy I got it. But that was before I knew it was stolen art... If I knew it was stolen art, I would've just taken it back! But I'm glad I know the artist who drew this that's on my T-shirt. Sadly, I can't take the shirt back, but I will still appreciate the work that was done. :3 Great job, Rismo!

Too bad you supported art thiefs.
Rismo doesn't allow this artwork to be used commercially. When people sell it on a shirt then it is commercially and they make profit while the original artist doesn't.

Actually, the artists himself (jjharrison.tumblr.com/post/854…) stated that it was the fault of neither hot topic nor deviantart that the shirt was sold. He sold rights to the picture to be used in a comic book, who gave rights to the picture to cartoon network as their contract stated they could, who gave the picture to hot topic legally.
In short: A big misunderstanding from all involved.

I bought this shirt before I knew that it was stolen, but it was because I really loved the picture!... hopefully that makes up for it...
(also were you trying to make it look like the scene it my neighbor totoro when they were waiting for the bus?)

There's a stupid rule when you sign up to DA that states: 

"3.     License To Use Artist Materials. As and when Artist Materials are uploaded to the deviantART Site(s), Artist grants to deviantART a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license."

This means DA can take any art they want, and sell it without giving any money to the original artist. They get all the profit, and DA doesn't have to ask permission. 

I absolutely HATE them for it. How could they just sell this beautiful and hard-worked-for piece?

Then why does the policy say so?

:iconanimeblue92:
AnimeBlue92 Featured By Owner Edited Jul 16, 2014  Student General Artist
Did you actually read the article? The policy is saying you give them permission to use your artist for commercial purposes only for on DevinatArt Not on any third-party sites or sources.  "The point of question in our Submission Policy is one which gives us the right to present the artwork you submit to deviantART on deviantART. Thus, artwork posted to deviantART may be used in promotional material for deviantART (with all due credit for the work included), but never for non-deviantART commercial purposes, and never without express recognition of the original artist. " 



Basically it's saying that if DA wants to use your work on for  promotions on their site, then they can be allowed to do so with your permission and  that they will give credit to you as the artist. 

Also you should take a look at this response from the artist of this piece, JJ Harrison. jjharrison.tumblr.com/post/854…

In short, when he agreed to allow Cartoon Network to use this work for a comic book cover, he was also agreeing for them to use it anything else. That's completely fair use in my opinion. I'm actually wearing the shirt form now as I type this hahaha. It's such a cool shirt and beautiful artwork!
