Small Veteran Owned Business versus Amazon et al

$100,000 goal

Campaign created 5 months ago
We are a small veteran owned business seeking support to fight against massive copyright of over 100 federally copyrighted and over 300 in other copyrighted intellectual properties infringements of our artwork by Sunfrog, Teespring and Amazon.

With our innovative and exclusive designs we were on the path to success until this theft occurred dashing our hopes and dreams of owning a business and providing for our families.  Now our small company is on the verge of bankruptcy due to this egregious theft. 

Legal and court costs are high and we can barely make ends meet much less stop these bullies from taking our hard earned future from us.  Funds will help our business stay afloat and finance the legal suit.

What happened...

Stay Frosty Enterprises, LLC is a small veteran owned business provides the brave individuals of the military and paramilitary service with clothing and gifts worthy of those that served.  Stay Frosty holds official licensing of the United States military and Popeye the Sailor. Some of Stay Frosty products include, T-Shirts, Challenge Coins, Drinkware and custom products.

In quarter 1 of 2016 Stay Frosty notice a sudden and unexpected drop in sales.  Upon research it was discovered that many companies had stolen Stay Frosty’s IP ( For example lifting images and selling T-shirts). The perpetrators included both small and large companies including Amazon.

Unfortunately, realizing how large and significant the impact was would not be clear until the fall of 2017, after discovering both Amazon and Teespring were selling hundreds of designs and had been for years.  Amazon displays when they began selling them, which according to their site was September of 2015 weeks after Stay Frosty released these new copyrighted designs on and weeks before Q4 the largest consumer spending period of the year!

Now, Stay Frosty Enterprises struggles to compete against itself, against the Goliaths of the industry, and has diversified into retail challenge coins to stay afloat.  Stay Frosty Enterprises’ place in the online military shirt market has practically disappeared.

This case is unprecedented.  This lawsuit will be the “stone” that slays these giants and allow a small innovative AMERICAN-MADE business to compete in the unprincipled and unethical desert of today’s online retail industry.  

We appreciate all your help and support overcoming this monumental threat!
