So, we received our first Cease and Desist letter yesterday. It wasn't even that official...it was via email. I kinda hoped it would be in print, on official letterhead so I could frame it, and hang it in the office. Since it wasn't, I found a good way to present it:
I'm a little indifferent about the whole thing though. One part of me wishes we could fight this, cause I think we stand a good chance of winning, since it's an obvious parody and should be protected under the 1st Amendment. We did however decide the best action is to avoid legal costs, and took the shirt off the website. From what the letter states, they have a problem with us gaining a profit from the use of the image...I might have some plans to for this design; taking it to the streets guerilla style.
