City of Surrey angry over parody T-shirts

According to Business In Vancouver, City of Surrey has sent a cease and desist letter to SurreyShirts.com for selling hoodies and T-shirts that highlight the city’s crime problem.

The city claims the SurreyShirts.com is violating its copyright by parodying its official logo and slogan “The future starts here.” into “The future ends here.”

Great job on the city's part on giving this guy some attention. I bet hes gonna sell alot more clothing in the next few weeks.

Quoted from Vancitybuzz.com:

Snippet from the letter:

“We require you to immediately cease and desist from this practise as you do not have permission to use the city’s logo in any promotional capacity,” the email from Huynh said. “Failure to comply will result in the city seeking redress through the courts.”
Don Pitcairn said he will not comply and the City of Surrey backed away from legal action because they realised they really didn’t have much of a case because changes to the Copyright Act last year holds that parody and satire do not infringe on copyright.

Pitcairn claims his images and slogans are anti-gang, anti-gun messages. Although in the eyes of many youth and residents outside of Surrey may see it otherwise.

^The store should send a free copy to Jamie Bacon and see if he'll model it for greater authenticity.

If they were really smart, they would know that the best way to handle it is to ignore it. Now they gave them a bunch of press, so you are going to see a lot more losers wearing these things
