    The Gluvets is a troupe owned and run by british puppeteer and builder Phil Fletcher... The photo above is his. Please dont get the two confused. Phil is a very tallented performer and it appears this Joseph guy is ripping of the name

    Ive contacted Phil aka Labrat to bring this to his attention

    I was not getting confused. I was just joking that he copied someone else. I very much respect LabRat, and hope he gets your message.

    The sad part is that a copyright infringement case would be dismissed when a person with developmental disabilities is involved. I have had clients who have gotten away with punching police officers and forging stolen checks simply because they have DD. All we can do is continuously report him to Facebook and ignore him--or--we can redirect him by sparking his interest in building his own puppets. Maybe we could just respond to his emails with links to puppet building tutorials (simple ones) and offer encouragement. That may get his focus/obsession onto a different area for a while.

    That's the thing - he does go on and off. At one point, as mentioned, he uploaded a bunch of Michael Jackson songs on YouTube saying they were off his new album. I take it Muppet Most Wanted coming out triggered this obsession again. Hopefully yes, he'll move back on to something else in due time.

    We can't let him get away with this! Even though I don't have a Facebook account, really should try to get him to stop!! I know it's been done, but it deserves another try!!
