THE SMOKING GUN shoots over news of MLB ceasing & desisting Morris Levin from selling any more of his Obama-themed clothing.
However, MLB lawyers believe the shirts were violating copyright, going on the online market without the expressed written consent of Major League Baseball:
Baseball officials have aggressively used legal threats to dissuade such reinterpretations of its logos, and apparently did not consider the Obama shirts as protected political speech or as transformative of its trademarks.
So, MLB has now gone after a collegiate summer league and an internet t-shirt vendor. I saw a kindergarten kid wearing a Dodgers backpack on only one shoulder. Why not sue him next for not properly representing league property?
