This is the message to let all friends and followers of Robin Brown know that his account has been suspended by RedBubble.
A bit of information for those who haven’t met Robin and his designs: Robin has been a member on RedBubble since a very long time ago. He quickly gained popularity and success with his tongue-in-cheek designs and good-natured humour. I highly value Robin as a friend and would like to thank him a million times for his valuable advice and heaps of inspiration. I’m sure I am not the only one who’d like to do that as well.
I was very saddened to learn that he had been (only recently and out of the blue) harassed by “them who shall not be named” and forced to remove several of his works. Robin firmly maintained his view that his works are a parody with no breach of copyright intended. In fact Robin’s designs are often exposing those who do copy the famous labels. But RedBubble decided the take the view that the artist is always wrong and finally suspended Robin’s account, which is rather hypocritical of RedBubble since there are still plenty of other designs available for sale on RB that directly copy the famous labels and logos.
Robin, you will be missed here on RB.
