Are print-on-demand on-line shops really going to steal my precious artwork?

I'm asking this for a friend, who is thinking of starting a shop on cafepress or a similar service, selling items based on his designs.
It seems there is some vague rumour floating around, even mentioned here on AskMe
, that one could lose ownership of the images used, or transfer a perpetual right-to-use to the company providing the printing services by agreeing to the Terms of Service. However, googling around hasn't led to any definite information.
Does anyone have any specific example of this happening, or any other negative experiences in this direction?
I realise you are not my lawyer, or my artistic friend's lawyer. Thanks for any relevant information.
