article imageThe NSA sends cease-and-desist letter to Zazzle

By Owen Weldon     Aug 31, 2013 in Business
The National Security Agency (NSA) sent out a cease-and-desist to the website Zazzle, asking it to remove NSA parody T-shirts that were being sold there.
According to Business Insider, the shirts in question featured the NSA's logo, an eagle, and the motto read "The only part of the government that actually listens."
Dan McCall, the shirt-maker, said that the message he received from Zazzle said:
We have been contacted by legal representatives from the National Security Agency, and at their request, have removed the product from the Zazzle Marketplace.
According to Salon, Zazzle's policy states that images or texts that may infringe on intellectual property rights are not allowed to be sold on the site.
According to WND, McCall said that the incident occurred about two months ago.
McCall said that it wasn't just the shirt that got yanked from Zazzle, but four or five bumper stickers also got yanked. He went onto say that the action that NSA took was a violation of his First Amendment right to free speech.
McCall moved his inventory to CafePress, another shirt-selling site.
