The well-known cartoonist, Lalo Alcaraz, recently found one of his cartoons on the front of a t-shirt being sold for $21.99 on Teespring.com. While this is already extremely problematic, the cartoon is part of a fundraiser whose proceeds will go to Benjamin Ramirez, a Los Angeles street vendor attacked in Hollywood earlier this month. The theft of Lalo's work is not just illegal, it's also morally repugnant.
Why is this important?
Artists deserve to be compensated for their work, especially when proceeds from that work are meant to help uplift a member of our community. Please sign the petition and tell Teespring to take stop the sale of copyrighted work .
