I'm pretty sure this isn't a licensed product, which is a shame, because I'd love one of these:

Yet another "Judge Dread" t-shirt, as if Rebellion wouldn't notice.

Aren't any bootleggers remotely original?

As Mr Stacey points out, the gimmick of this particular company is that they do stuff deliberately wrong, in a way that is guaranteed to wind up fanboys.  For example, a picture of the USS Enterprise with "Star Wars" underneath.

Given that Rebellion are now taking advantage of (recently-introduced) parody exemption legislation to publish trademark-trampling Cursed Earth Uncensored, I would imagine these particular T-shirts are nudging into a grey area.

Zach Howard is understandably annoyed.

Not using that artwork they're not.
