Skip to main content Crushes Free Speech with Trademark Infringement Claims

By September 30, 2007Internet Lawyer

The moonbats at support free speech only if it is a discounted full page ad in the New York Times where they smear a U.S. general as being a traitor.

Overreaching with the smear, there has been grassroots opposition to it from all parts of the political spectrum…including entrepreneurs who have created t-shirts in protest of the McCarthyesque tactics applied by to attack anyone who doesn’t agree with the organization completely.

In response to trademark infringement claims made by the moonbats, Cafe Press has pulled t-shirts from inventory that make reference to by name. This is a unique interpretation of trademark law…mentioning an organization’s name in satirical political works is a violation? Hardly.

But the moonbats insist that you and I don’t have First Amendment rights to dissent. Like Lord Voldemort (he who must not be named), the doesn’t want to be mentioned.
Just because someone claims trademark infringement, don’t take the claim at face value. Check with your lawyer.

And as for, here’s one of the censored messages.

As a final thought, when it comes to traitors, consider who is trying to snuff out your First Amendment rights if you disagree with them.


It isn’t General Petraeus.
