Full Story: Shaddai “Shadman” Prejean shuts down Shadbase over legal problems Kiwi Farms thread: Shädbase / Shädman / Shaddai Prejean Shaddai Prejean, better known by his artist handle Shadman, has shut down his pornography website Shadbase after remarking on Twitter about “legal issues”. Comic of Daniel Keem’s child by Shadman. Shadbase featured many drawn pornographic images with characters that were depicted as being underage. While such drawings are a hot topic in freedom of speech debates, American courts have repeatedly upheld citizens’s rights to own and produce erotic cartoons featuring young characters. There are two main exceptions to this law in the US according to U.S. Code § 2252A: If the pornography is 3D rendered in such a way it is indistinguishable from a real photograph, or If the pornography is drawn in the likeness of a real child. Shaddai may have violated the statute when he began antagonizing celebrities. He recently drew a picture of Internet sensationalist Daniel Keem’s daughter, albeit not in a sexual way. He also branded it with a banner stating that any likenesses are “coincidental”. While that precaution works for parody and satire, such as the iconic South Park introductory title card, US law is much less forgiving with child pornography. Many of the warnings, workarounds, and courtesies that would be given for defamation and copyright complaint cases are skipped in favor of property seizures and arrests, as U.S.C. 2252 is a criminal issue, not civil. LTcorbis in one of her videos, featuring her microphone. However, more explicitly, Shadbase drew a comic featuring the unmistakable likeness of the child named LTcorbis, an 11 year old girl who became infamous for producing videos with extreme sexual spoken content. This time Shadman was less subtle and more pornographic. The image featured the microphone in LTcorbis’s videos as an innuendo for a phallus simulating sexual acts with her and did not feature a “purely coincidental” warning as before. Members of Internet forums allegedly reported this video to the FBI for being a possible production of child pornography. It is unknown if this precisely is what caused Shadman to take his site down, though considering it is his primary source of income, the issue being a civil one does not seem probable.
