Daily Dot wrote:On Tuesday, DeviantArt notified the artist that they’d received a cease-and-desist notice directed at her, and that she’d need to take down information on her page about selling plushes.

...

On Bronies Forever, a Facebook community page with 45,000 members, fans pointed this out that, while Hasbro has sent her the notice, the company does not manufacture plush pony toys and has no competing products.

“Come on, Hasbro,” Nate Dowd wrote. “This is such a load of crap. You appear to have no intention of producing [Friendship is Magic] plushies, especially such high-end ones. So why bother punishing someone when they're not even taking potential money out of your pocket?”

Fans said they realize the company has a duty to protect its intellectual property, but some thought Hasbro would be better off hiring Bourlon to help it start a line of official plush toys.

“Hasbro should just hire these amazing plushie makers and earn money on this, instead of breeding misery,” Jeanette Hansen wrote.

“I'm writing to Hasbro to suggest they hire WhiteDove on as a freelance artist,” Christin Deville added. “I think it wouldn't be a bad idea if we all got together and did this.”

More at link.

Personally I don't really see an issue with it. Hasbro kind of has to shut her down if she's making a profit off of an IP she doesn't own, and for the sake of future IP defense, if she was reported, they can't exactly just say, "Oh well keep on profiting off our IP".

Yeah, there's not really an issue with Hasbro stepping in. It would be like if some vendor was selling unlicensed Spongebob plushies. Viacom would definitely take action to defend their IP. By not doing anything, others may get the idea that they can get away with it too.

Anyways, it would be cool if Hasbro did hire her to start a new plushie line, but I think that's 99% likely not to happen.

Seeing as they are not out-right suing her, I don't see any problem with this as well.

Letting her start the plushie line would be a reasonable end to it. She gets to keep doing what she's been doing and Hasbro gets a cut. Everybody wins.
