Spreadshirt have just sent me an email warning me to remove all references to a particular sporting event this year. Apparently one of their users is being sued by FIFA for making a teeshirt that says "WORLD CUP 2006, Iran-Angola, I was there".
I can well see that FIFA would want to protect the World Cup brand, and would go after dodgy fake teeshirts. However, they actually have a whole list of "protected" phrases, which apparently you're not allowed to use, the words "World Cup" being one of them. Oops, too late.
So if you're struggling to find teeshirts about the world cup, look no further. For £20, I will sell you a teeshirt that says "world cup? fifa suck!", and has a picture of the actual world cup* underneath (unfortunately, as Spreadshirt can't make such a thing, so I'll be making them myself. Each one is 100% unique, and I'll even number them for extra exclusivity. The picture is a guide only, actual product may vary. Contact me if you're interested**
Notes: * May not be the actual world cup. ** But please don't contact me if you're a lawyer. *** This is satire, I hope you have a sense of humour. **** If not, no amount of sueing people will fix that. ***** Check out another football related shirt!.
