The World is Actually Older Than the Internet

One of the things that I find the most annoying on the Internet today, is disinformation, and those that still believe anything they read, which usually just helps spread the confusion.

We are currently selling a shirt on our main website http://supershirtguy.com/ that Europeans have been wearing, for at least 14 years. I am actually selling the ones made by the original manufacturer.

So here I am putting this particular shirt on the Internet, and I find Three people all claiming they are the artist that has drawn it, and are all selling them on American websites, as the original.

Now I have to say here that I was recently spoken about on one of these Massive huge shirt company websites,  I don’t know if any of them are part of the company or not, and to be honest most of them didn’t like my selection of shirts, but that is fine, they are only made for cool people to wear anyhow.

Some though accused us of plagiarizing the art used on the shirt.

So to them I would like to say this.

First of all we only buy and resell the shirts we have nothing to do with the design right now.

Second of all your websites claim on the design is less than 5 years old, and this company I believe has been around for over 2 decades, and had this particular design over a decade already.

Third I am actually pretty sure They are the largest t-shirt store in the world, yours might be the biggest in America, but who knows you may even buy from these people for all I know.

Forth of all, The world is older than the Internet. Believe it or not being the first to stake claim to a picture you place on the Internet does not actually mean it didn’t exist before.
