Apparently Todd Goldman’s lawyers are sending out C&D letters to anyone that mentions the recent allegations of him plagiarizing Dave “Shmorky” Kelly’s webcomic:

Therefore, we request that you immediately remove these article from your website, as well as any subsequent articles and/or URL links of this nature regarding Mr. Goldman.

You can also view an actual letter on Wired.com’s entry of the whole dispute. So far, it seems the man all the shenanigans are true, considering he reached a settlement with David Kelly on the matter. He needs to be consistently shamed for what he’s doing and how he made this entire mess in the first place.
