No. No he wasn't. His work was not parody nor was it commentary. He used someone else's trademarked character to create his own fan works and he took Patreon money to do it. He was directly profiting off someone else's work. While Hasbro shouldn't have given him the run around he knew what he was doing was wrong. When you create fan content like that you are entirely dependant upon the characters owner to decide whether or not they're OK with you creating (and profiting from) such content. If they don't like it tough shit you gotta deal with it. They're legally required to protect their trademarks. Jan's lucky all he was required to do was cease making fan content.
