I was going to order my first sheet of custom stickers for a Skystriker I am working on, and the website has been taken down from Hasbro threats!

I create custom cards as well, but I don't sell them, so I believe they fall under the private use allowances. the tricky part is whether uploading them to share online can be argued to be publishing, which would be a violation of Hasbro's intellectual property rights.
the point is there is a big difference between making custom cards and making a custom figure from existing parts and selling them as one of a kind customs, which 334 kind of wanted to claim were the same.

Frank Abagnale was arrested for counterfeiting and placed in prison (as depicted in the book and film "Catch Me If You Can"). The FBI eventually hired him to combat other counterfeiters. Since he's already been shut down Hasbro would be wise to hire this gentleman to create cards for their figures as his work is top notch...

That's too bad. I didn't particularly like his decals, but they were a cheap alternative to Ruben or this new Cobra Stickers place. Important to note that according to his site, it was the carded figures Hasbro had a problem with, not the decals. Thank goodness - I'd hate for them to go after Ruben and Cobra Stickers. The original stickers were obviously not meant to last... I buy all my vehicles either still sealed or mint that have never had stickers applied, and I can't even use 80% of the original sticker sheets - they're all sticky and gross!

Hasbro had made an official statement about customs not to long ago. They indicated they had no problem with people making custom figures or even selling them and wanted to encourage their customers to do so. But they indicated that selling card backs was a violation of their trademarks and that it was not allowed. You could make the card back for yourself, but you could not sell them. (I think it's a matter of forgery and possibly cheating consumers into thinking that a previously opened figure was MOC.) So, this guy tried to keep producing cards even though they had already publicly and officially stated it was a no-no. Totally not surprised they shut him down.

now that gijoe is getting big again i think we will see this vise start up again.
a few years back a small-time site got canned for custom parts they were great. but they used copy written names to show off parts. and it looks to me from some of these other sites that simple name change is all you need for some custom sites.
