Isn't he the same mother that ripped off old Marlboro ads and the original shooter got zilch? I think that's the first good sign regarding copyright that I've come across in a long time; I hope it makes those thieves quake in their own crap.

But then, until you can make the law appreciate the fragility of copyright, it will always be a battle for us creativos: random victories are not enough; it must be enshrined in law in such a way that the message is clear: steal, and thou shalt pay through thy nose.
