Guy Who Regularly Sells Trademarked Logos Without A License Says It’s All Legal, Worcester Paving Gypsies Shocked That Harley-Davidson Doesn’t Want To Associate With Them


This is Tony Freitas from Worcester:

And he’s the nudnik freelance “artist” who drew the HD logo on the Miss Worcester Diner. According to him he quit his job as a full time boiler room salesman to start his own company called “Dig-Outz” that seems to mostly be him using other company’s trademarked logos on cornhole sets that he charges close to $300 a set for.

There is no company registered under the name Dig-outz in Massachusetts, nor is there any business registered in his name.

He openly sells products using logos of brands he doesn’t own and doesn’t have a license to use, and sees nothing wrong with it.

This whole controversy with Miss Worcester Diner (read about it here) is largely because of him. Ya see, dumbass here is basically her legal advisor, and since he sells shit with other people’s trademarks without a license for a living, he figures anyone else should be able to as well. Here’s what a source tells us:

The contracted artist, I believe, knew the logo was trademarked. He and his ex-partner got the ex-partner’s boss in a similar situation with HD. He continues to rip people off , and freely uses trademarked logos etc to make money while the business owners get stuck with the legalities. The first thing he did in this case was “ohh im on the news.” By the way HD. Heres another time I infringed on HD. Threw another person under the bus.”

He’s not wrong – this dude LOVES the limelight. He’s been posting incessantly about the newfound fame he’s gotten because of his illegal use of a trademarked logo on the Miss Worcester Diner:

He’s a real tough guy so when he first hear that his girl Kimmy was having a problem the first thing he thought was, “who’s ass do I need to kick for you?”

This dude is the only one guy in America who could go toe to toe with Landon Steele and live to talk about it.

I call him her legal advisor because she appears to be listening to his totally non-legal advice about copyright.

“It was a private business transaction done on private property.”

This is not excuse to violate copyright law.

“I deal with copyright laws all day every day.”

No, you ignore copyright laws all day every day and then create controversy for people you supposedly care about because dumb people like Kim Kniskern listen to you.

Listen to this interview he did on Spectrum News:

“When someone commissions me to do something and it’s something that’s a “licensed logo,” I’m not really concerned about copyright because I’m not selling…I don’t believe it’s copyright infringement at that point because I’m not selling t-shirts or stickers or making a profit off of it. This is a tribute to Harley-Davidson.”

Oh OK. He’s not concerned about it, therefore it’s legal. After all, he’s not selling anything, right?

I messaged him to see if he wanted to come on the live show, since he apparently is addicted to his 15 minutes of fame, and during our conversation I quickly realized that he’s even dumber than he appears.

Just to review.

  • He can use trademarked logos because there is a “loophole with artwork and hand made goods.”
  • He doesn’t have a link to that loophole, but he’s got a screenshot of a comment on his Facebook page.
  • There’s something called the “one and done clause” that he can’t seem to find that makes this obviously illegal practice legal.
  • He’s selling them “privately” by advertising them on Facebook where the public can see.
  • He’s gonna get me for slander as soon as he looks into the definition of slander, while simultaneously thanking me for the free press
  • It’s all good because he’s not using a machine or printing press, even though he posts pictures of the machines he uses on Facebook

Yup, his story checks out.

Business is going so well that he’s moving to a 5,000 square foot facility!

Except, he doesn’t have a registered business with the Secretary of State’s office.

He’s also profiting off of cancer.

“I gave her a good price.”

You’re not virtuous if you’re profiting off of cancer by selling them to a charitable cause.

He knows what he’s doing is legal because some guy named Justin on his Facebook page said it was. He also said that I’m guilty of deformation for pointing all of this out.

Obviously Justin Nolan is a brilliant legal scholard whose opinions should be taken seriously.

Very seriously.

Justin’s upset that we didn’t write about his very legitimate conspiracy theory about how DCF and the governor’s council are out to get his crotch fruits.


Then there was this genius post:

Ya see Tony, they asked her permission to use her diner on their t-shirts. She didn’t ask Harley’s permission. You might think you proved some sort of point here, but it was actually one of the greatest self owns of all time.

He evidently wasn’t happy and was happy at the same time about being mentioned on the Live show.

“I’m a rogue artist….That’s bad ass.”

No, it’s not. You’re a grown man running an unlicensed business, stealing other people’s work and profiting off of it.

“Tell me I can’t do something, guess what? I’m gonna do it even bigger, better, and louder.”

We got ourselves a bad ass!

“I can use any logo, any name, any image, anyone’s likeness.”

No, you can’t.

“Laws are made to be broken.”

No, they’re not.

This is who Kim Kniskern is taking legal advice from. So yesterday she went to the gym and saw a guy with a Red Sox tattoo and posted this:

No moron, he doesn’t need their permission because his leg is not a commercial business.

It really is like the blind leading the blind on her page. When you surround yourself with stupid people, you’re gonna get a lot of stupid advice.

Yea Shianne, I wrote the letter. Glad that’s what you took out of this.

Also, this guy Mickey Giuseppe III is gonna slap me.

Hardo alert!

Tony Freitas’ Facebook friends agree with him, so that’s all he needed to hear. They have really insightful things to add to the conversation, like, “they hate us cuz they ain’t us,” “fuck the haters,”

“Pencil dick,” and “he has a pussy name.”

“What a piece of jizz,” and “fuck Turtleboy.”

Brian Kniskern is the stepson of Kim Kniskern, and really seems to hate Turtleboy.

Which makes sense because Brian Kniskern is a lifetime criminal with more Google trophies than I can count. Strangulation, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, witness/juror/police officer/court official intimidation, threatening to murder…

Larceny, threats, assault, harassment – you name it, he’s been doing it and getting charged for it since 2001.

It runs in the family. Just ask Robert Kniskern.

Or Leonard Kniskern.

Or Joe Kniskern, who took over the family business and never paid $8,000 he owed in rent.

Or Kim herself, who’s been charged with driving without a license and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

The family owned business is BK & Sons Paving, and they’re no stranger to small claims and civil actions either.

I’m shocked that Harley-Davidson wouldn’t wanna be associated with a Worcester gypsy clan using their trademark without permission.

    We have 5 principles and 23 warrants for 23 sites, FBI is overseeing the operation with Home Land. IRS forensic accounting working with Mass DOR will be handling the money side. State Police will be making entry with US Marshalls, we have information that 3 of the warrants are considered high risk convicted felons with a history of violence, resisting arrest and an unknown number and type stolen weapons present. So SWAT will be making entry, we even have DCF along unfortunately there are minors and young children involved in a few locations. Our tech guys have them on stingray and they are actively listening and tracking. Ok everybody gear up these are simultaneous no knock warrants with initial breaching set for 3 AM.

    How stupid can these motherfuckers be??? What they need is a hard fucking dose of reality and I guarantee they are fucking with one entity that can bring it. First is HD; they have almost unlimited resources and if they get a hair across their ass, they can set some lawyer on his ass and he will pay dearly. Second is the feds, and to a lesser extent, the state – if they get a sniff of this douchebag making a shitload of money and not paying taxes, they will lower a boom that will make HD’s actions look like child’s play. Uncle Sam will fuck you raw if you don’t pay taxes. And that is not my opinion, there are numerous cases of fuckheads who thought they could cheat Uncle Sam and found themselves in prison. They don’t seek only restitution, they will lock your ass up. I hope this jackass has been keeping good records, because it won’t be long before the feds get a hold of this with all the media exposure that he is praising.

    Unc, although I can’t find a picture, he’s using a computer controlled CNC rotor to carve those logos into sign foam before he paints them. So much for his “All by hand” lie. He gets the original files off a website like “seeklogo” then the computer does the rest. Hardly done “by hand.”

      FYI when we audit a small operation like a mom/pop doing crafts at a weekend fair, we’ll look at their PayPal/Venmo income as less than 10% of their overall sales. So if this “artist” has either of those, that’s where we begin to evaluate how much under reported (or not at all) her/his income was.
