The people vs Stockart.com

If you haven't yet heard this story, prepare yourselves. A notable designer by the name of Jon Engle has been accused of stealing his own work. Yep, you heard right. Stockart.com has claimed that Jon stole the creative from their site (which is created via crowd sourcing) and used it to service his clientele. The truth of the matter is that the original work, designed by Jon, and posted on his online portfolio, were blatantly ripped off by the wannabe "designers" that keep sites like these alive. Stockart.com sent Jon a bill for $18,000 and the madness ensued. For the full story and a collection of of Stockart rip-offs click here.
