I happen to know that Disney strickly defends their rights against copyright infringement. I know an art fair vendor who was selling hand painted children's t-shirts with Disney characters on them. She was approached by a Disney rep who told her to cease sales immediately, pending legal action.
My question is, how and why do these Internet sites get away with demeaning and defaming these same characters everyday in ****ography, when us legitamate, decent artists can't even sell them at all?

Dear Steve Nails,
 
When they get caught they can pay more than money. When you sell, it is all yours.

Because you can't commit copyright infringement and point the finger at what other people are doing.  Would you stand up in front of a judge and say everyone else was speeding, why did I get a ticket?
 
Use their licensed fabric and be creative with that.  That is not infringing activity.
