We recently got a comment on a post, protesting our use of the word “FootVols” as a violation of copyright and intellectual property laws. See the comment and post here
First of all, who the hell is Terry Burnette and why is she such a stick in the mud? Besides, the copyright Terry Burnette owns is for Foot(-)Vols with a football in the middle on a Tshirt.
Click here and search for “foot vols” minus the quotations.
Also, Terry Burnette owns the copyright to “Great Vols “A” Fire” Get it right moron. In fact, go ahead and give me the name of your attorney, and I will contact him, if only to ask if you’re this big of a douche in real life too.
Your statement is about as plausible as me saying: I hereby Trademark the name Terry Burnette(TM), so you should please contact my attorney before using the name in any capacity in the future. Please cease and desist use of the name immediately or face legal action.
Seriously, is this what you do, is go around on the internet looking for blogs that use words that you have randomly copywritten 16 years ago to harass because you’re a crotchety old man?
Looking up copyright law, we are well aware that copyrighting does not protect “short phrases or slogans”. Any lawyers out there that want to chime in on this are more than invited. If in fact we are violating copyright law, then we will be glad to take down any mention of that word; at this point, however, we feel that our use of the word “FootVols” and your idea for a T-shirt do not constitute illegal infringement.
Also, we don’t respond kindly to threats, and you can contact whoever you want wherever you want, because honestly, you’re acting like a sad, sorry troll who fears things that he doesn’t understand.
You apparently love the law so much, how’s this one for size? First Amendment, freedom of speech. So, that being the case, would losers who dislike people using a word that resembles a copyright that they may or may not own, put on tshirts that aren’t even available anywhere, STFU and go away? Thank you.
Oh, and Go FootVols! FootVols are great! FootVols!
