Lawsuit Filed Against Tapout: The suit is in regards to TapouT allegedly appropriating the intellectual property of Justin Weber. IPToday.com as the gist of it:
"After seeing just how fast and well Weber’s design merchandise was selling, Tapout’s management crafted a scheme to obtain Weber’s original artwork so that it could freeze him out by having a different company manufacture the Weber-designed goods.

The lawsuit is pending in the Superior Court of California in San Bernardino County."
