That’s right. I’m officially green-lighting a hit on Jim Shipman. Apparently he’s back AGAIN and plying his illegal wares. Yes, AGAIN, this isn’t a repeat from:
- Outlaw Press, aka Jim Shipman, Is A Big Crook
- Outlaw Press Thieving Update
- Outlaw Press/Jim Shipman Sinks To Demented, Pathetic New Lows In Art Theft Scandal
- Further Jim Shipman Warnings, Sigh
This is a sad statement on our modern legal system. With stuff like this, it’s impossible to decently prove criminal charges, and you need money and time and gumption and standing to pursue civil action (which he’d just ignore anyway and leave a shell company to collapse). Yay, if you’re a company you can get away with anything. Can’t we put one of those annoying IP rights organizations to work? Hey, RIAA, you could get some GOOD press for once by suing this dickhead into the Stone Age.
And don’t these Internet sites keep any records? He’s been reported and his store pulled from Amazon and Lulu and all that multiple times now. Come on guys.
Anyway, if you are near Lawrenceville, IL, you know what to do. You don’t even really have to kill him – if ten strangers showed up and just kicked his ass really good then maybe he’d just go get a job at Denny’s or something instead of continuing to pollute our hobby.
