Dave vs. Goliath update

In the previous episode Todd Goldman was caught with his hand in Dave Kelly's cookiejar and exposed for the con-artist he is to which he first called Dave a furry pedo, then had a lawyer write up an apology which basically boils down to the well-known "A friend gave me the image, I didn't know I wasn't supposed to trace it! Tracing it makes it mine! I didn't steal anything!" we hear all the time from 13 year old girls on Deviant Art.

Now he's threatening to sue Mike Tyndall for putting up a site with comparisons between older original art from various established artists and Goldman's more recent so-called "sarcastic commentary and cartoon icons".
The site suggests that pretty much everything he's ever made is a rip-off including his flagship "boys are stupid, throw rocks at them" image.

Oh Goldman, even Rien Poortvliet, how could you? A shiv to the kidneys in a dark alley is too good for you ^_~

Tyndall's site is currently being Slashdotted, so if it's down you should try again later.

The best part of that affair for me was when Roman Dirge popped up on SA and agreed that Todd Goldman was a wanker.

It's looking more and more like everything he does comes in one of four flavors:

1. Tired memes all t-shirt companies use.
2. Cut and pasting of multiple sources.
3. Outright theft.
4. All of the above.

I hope he gets his ass nailed to a door for it. All his C&D bullshit did was spread the flames farther.

Does anyone else remember the big news story awhile ago (i cant remember if it was on TV, written articles or both) where those "boys are stupid, throw rocks at them" shirts were getting bad publicity because they were sexist and violent? Thats just....that just adds to the awesome.
