Art Theft by Outlaw Press

In November 2009 it was discoverd that Outlaw Press was selling books for use with Tunnels & Trolls without having licenses for the cover art. A discussion at RPGnet uncovered many of the infringements as the discussion grew and artists came forward to identify their stolen work.

Despite Jim Shipman being notified of the infringing covers and his acknowledgement of the infringement (he removed the product images of infringing covers), he continues to offer these products for sale. He has claimed that he was a victim of an "art broker", but he is still trying to sell the infringing print products as of early December. By selling them, Shipman is willfully violating the artists' copyrights, undermining his protestations of innocence.
