    Humor Out Of KU?

    Joe-College.com

    I found that link reading about KU trying to sue this company and shut them down for using the logo without permission. They do have some pretty funny shirts and some pretty crude ones so beware may not BSFW. I know our rivalry with UI is pretty heated at times but it seems like nothing when you look at some of the shirts directed at MIZZOU and KSU.

    KU's upset because half people in the student section are wearing those shirts. They won some money from the first case but the court said most of the shirts weren't violating copyright laws. Now they're taking them to court again trying to recoup the million+ dollars they've supposedly spent on legal fees. Between that and the bad publicity is it really worth it?

    The guy running Joe College, Larry Sinks, is really a pretty big scumbag. Everyone that's been around Lawrence for a while knows it. He knows he's violating the university's trademarks but continues to sell shirts to make a buck. He ignored numerous cease and desist orders before being sued. He takes t-shirts that students make, copies them and calls them his own, knowing the student doesn't have money to come after him legally. Then he whines when the university comes after him. KU tried to work with him, but time and time again, he's shown that he'll do anything to make a buck. He tries to spin the story as being the little guy, the small business owner, but he has had this coming for a while now. Honestly, I hope KU sues the **** out of him and he has to move out of his $1,000,000 house on the golf course.
