EDIT 3 : !! IMPORTANT !!

APPARENTLY THIS SHOP IS HAVING A CLEARANCE SALE

THEY ARE SELLING ALL THE STOLEN CLOTHES LEFT AND WON'T RESTOCK THEM


I'm assuming they're doing this as fast as they can (50% off, free shipping) to remove those from their shop as soon as possible.
HOWEVER I DON'T THINK THEY'RE GOING TO COMPENSATE ANYONE
THEY WANT TO GET OUT OF THE TROUBLE THEYRE IN AND THE ONLY POSSIBLE WAY TO DO SO NOT GETTING PUNISHED IS THAT ONE.

If you are one of the victims PLEASE write an email to their domain hoster sending them all the proofs. 
They've stolen thousands of dollars by selling clothes with stolen art. They're not going to compensate the artists.

They are going to get away with all the money if we don't do anything now.




Edit 2: My instagram account against Happymondaystore has been blocked. Anyone who calls them out will be blocked. 
They aren't going to address the problem
, they are just going to block you.


Edit 1: IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE AFFECTED ARTIST, PLEASE FOLLOW THE STEPS ON THESE JOURNALS IN ORDER TO REPORT THEM
How To Take Down Art Theft WebsitesNo, this isn't about sending DMCAs to the website that's stealing your art. As if reporting a thief to themself is actually going to work. Here's how to actually hurt them.
Step 1. Look up who hosts their domain using one of the following links:
https://www.whois.net/
http://whois.domaintools.com/
Step 2. Ignore the physical address and phone numbers, this is only relevent if you have to escalate to a lawyer which you shouldn't need to do unless it's a really extreme case.
DO NOT CONTACT THEM BY THESE MEANS. Calling them to harass them can land you in hot legal water. It's also important not to involve your fans on this crusade, as tempting as it might be. This is a gigantic waste of everyone's time. Only you, the copyright owner, can legally report for infringement.
Step 3. Look for the "domain registrar" and then search up that company's copyright policy page. All domain services have cop
Lessons Learned: How I Dealt With An Art ThiefEvery day, many people on deviantArt find themselves dealing with art thieves off-site (outside deviantArt). There are many ways to approach this issue, but this article is about how I went about it. I'm only writing this in an attempt to be helpful to others going through the same thing, or give ideas to those going through it who don't know where to start or what to do. Becoming victim to an art ripper isn't a hopeless, helpless situation. Though I was inexperienced with the issue at the time and justifiably angered, I was able to prevail through a mixture of help from other kind deviants, a professional manner/attitude and resources found on the web.
My particular case began one day about a week after my first Daily Deviation was given to me by Aeires. Up until that time I was a relatively unknown artist, and was minimally protecting my work with an easily removed watermark. I didn't really think my work was worth stealing, and honestly hadn't thought about what would happen if





With more than 45,8K followers, Happymondaystore has gotten popular among anime fashion lovers. However, the only thing they do in order to create their "Unique and Handmade clothes" is copying and pasteing aesthetic .pngs and other people's art with no permission.
Many artists have tried to make this shop stop using other people's art without permission, but they doesn't seem to care, they keep doing it.

There are many other stolen designs, but I think this is enough proof, right?

Please share this, this shop needs to be closed down. They have no intention to stop since they have been called out plenty of times and THEY KEEP STEALING OTHER PEOPLE'S WORK.


I ALSO NEED HELP IN ORDER TO FIND THE REMAINING ORIGINAL ARTISTS!! IF YOU KNOW WHO DREW ANYTHING, PLEASE TELL ME!!


They have made a lot of money using other people's intellectual work, which is ILLEGAL.


Thank you for reading

If it hasn't been stated yet I think I found the artist for the 1st one featuring Tokyo Ghoul.
When you scroll down to the 10th artwork it appears that an artist named: Ujiyama Kisen is the creator.
76.72.168.19/search/results/?p…

Forgive me if I'm wrong this was me doing a quick research. I was not able to go into their website because I do not have a pixiv account so if anyone else want's to double check it would be wonderful to help I'm sure. ^ ^

No, it's not good. Stealing is illegal, therefore the money they're making is ILLEGAL. They are taking advantage of indie artists to make money which is one of the worst things you can do. These artists put all of their effort in these drawings and people is making money out of them. It's just so freaking wrong. You should be aware of that.

I'd rather not being popular than having my designs stolen.

No need to be rude.

The shop might not close down but at very least we get to spread the word and people won't buy anything from them.
I'm sorry you don't get to empathize with people, but in my case I do and I can't ignore the fact that this shop is selling designs that actual people, with feelings, put effort on. It's not your problem if I prefer to spend my time helping these artists spreading the word. 


If you're not going to help but being rude, just try to ignore this journal or even learn to emphatize.

No offense, but good artists don't need much recognition: They're everywhere. Like Nami-kun, Hyanna Natsu, and SmexyViButt. They are just a bunch of people who have so much time on there hands, and don't care how important this is. Please, learn to get this in your head. Tracing and Copying is not good. It is downright rude.

It isn't the artist's fault that you're so moronic you don't even know what you're talking about.
A quick google search will tell you that copyright is automatic.

But hey, I don't blame you for not being concerned about your hard work getting stolen & sold.
I wouldn't worry either if my stuff looked like this.

Hell yeah, a doodle over photoshop effects? You sure showed me, 'TheDoctorPoo', with your bootleg elmo icon. 

Anyway, that wasn't the point at all, but way to miss it by showing your insecurities about your drawings & pretending you weren't wrong about your arguments.

Grow up.
