What happened? Quoting from the fundraiser page:
A Russian man has illegally registered an illegitimate trademark for SCP within the Eurasian Customs Union. He has used this trademark to threaten and extort legitimate sellers of SCP merchandise. In addition, he has committed copyright infringement by violating the SCP content license: Creative Commons Share-alike 3.0. We first updated the community about this situation 6 months ago, and now it has escalated.
Gah, I hate when awesome communities like this are being target by douchenozzles. So glad that at this rate, SCP-RU will probably be fine.
