Submission + - Copyrighting Graffiti (

LordThyGod writes: A man police identified as a prolific graffiti artist spotted his designs on T-shirts for sale at an arts and crafts store and stole them, Metro Police said.

Philip G. Rodriguez, 25, was arrested at his home Wednesday and charged with stealing 19 T-shirts from Regalo.

Police said he pushed the store owner, Jeffrey Dotson, claiming he owned the copyright to the designs, according to his arrest report.

Dotson said his Fourth Street location was tagged with graffiti in the spring, so he took a photo of the graffiti and had it printed on the shirts, intending to donate the proceeds to Brightside, the Louisville Ky beautification effort.
