Wow, as if coming after you will make their 💩 sets any better? The fans that are done with them are done, gpk is dead and ain’t coming back. Os is all they had, and they screwed the artists over to even get that done. No low is low enough for these corporate pricks

This lawsuit is definitely a head scratcher. What does Topps think they are going to get from this? They definitely aren't going to get money. They are almost certainly going to lose money in this case due to legal costs.
I think they may be doing this so they can use Luis to set a precedent. If they are successful they'll use this outcome to try and shut down all of the people doing stuff on their own. So this case could be more damaging than just trying to shut down one artist.
Bring some pics of the art that's been released lately, especially the Trumpocracy set, and the judge will throw the case out. The judge may even draw up a cease and desist based on the crappy artwork and hand it to Topps to prevent them from producing any more sets.

Luis, I think one place to hit back at them is their insistence that your products are going to confuse customers; that is, that someone will buy your product thinking that it's official GPK. Variations on the word "confuse" show up 16 times in the document, and that's the way they're making the case that you're taking potential sales from them. IANAL, but it would make sense to me to make a point of saying that your products weren't sold in big box or hobby stores; if you had language on your online store disclaiming that the cards weren't made by Topps, that would be relevant, as well as where you marketed them (such as here, where those in the hobby know the difference).
I always thought your post-Topps work was a parody of Garbage a Pail Kids, thus a parody of a parody! Aren’t there parody laws protecting us? You paid taxes on this stuff, and none of it was sold retail or in stores, it was just online private orders between friends! We aren’t your customers, we are your GPK brothers and your friends!! How is any of this illegal?!!!! All the people that bought from you were UG members, we are in the same circle!
Some of you know that I’m getting sued by The Topps Company, a former client. It’s been a rough couple of months for my family and as you can imagine. I made a gofundme campaign if you feel like donating. Anything will help. It would also help of you can spread our story. I’m lucky to have good people on our side and feel confident, but there are things that are out of our control right now. I will be sending a limited edition signed and numbered trading card to everyone that donates to the campaign or through paypal. Please send me your address once it goes through. Thank you for being there with us.
Despite speculation in the article I doubt it was super favorable for topps. I feel like this was supposed to make an example of Diaz and it doesn’t exactly feel like that to me, it feels more like topps trying to be a bully. If it really was favorable for topps i think we will see more lawsuits in the future?

seymourbarf: And don't get me started on Maria Thayer. I have loved her ever since she played Copper Top on Strangers with Candy. I have a straight-up crush on that girl. Amy Adams too. Hell, put boobs on Ronald McDonald and I'd give 'em a go!

seymourbarf: Okay, so Eagleheart is probably the funniest, most ridiculous show I have seen since...Get a Life! Chris Elliot is a comedic god. I even loved the one season he was on SNL. Great link Trippy!
