Selling copyrighted material
He’s quite cool with spreading Other People’s money, but, his own? Not so much
(SacBee) A website sued by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign for selling T-shirts and other merchandise with the campaign’s signature “O” logo is taking down the offending merchandise.
A judge in Washington on Monday agreed to bar Washington-based Demstore.com from selling merchandise with the “O” logo trademarked by the campaign. But the judge had reserved judgment on whether the website should also be barred from selling merchandise with a logo that uses the distinctive “O” as part of the year 2012.
Amazingly, these people are such ObamaZombies that they still plan on selling generic crap merchandise supporting Obama even after being sued to stop spreading the wealth around.

Leaders of two of the most prominent U.S. industries - entertainment and technol-ogy - have begun publicly sniping at each other over how to stop consumers from copying digital movies, music and television shows.
The feud grows out of Hollywood's frustration with the illicit flow of copyright works over the Internet. Despite courtroom victories against Napster Inc. and others deemed to fac... consumers want it, rather than focusing on how to control current forms of distribution.
That might mean changing long-entrenched ways of doing business - for example, selling individual songs instead of an entire CD, or releasing movies simultaneously over the Internet and in theaters. It also might mean accepting lower profit margins and seeking to compensate by building bigger markets.
S. 968 provides a narrower definition of a website “dedicated to
infringing activities” than the Combating Online Infringement
and Counterfeits Act. In addition, while the PROTECT IP Act would
authorize the Attorney General and rights holders to bring actions
against online infringers operating a rogue website or domain, the
remedies are limited to block...tors and businesses of revenue and
result in the loss of American jobs. In addition, these websites
present a public health concern when they sell counterfeit,
adulterated, or misbranded pharmaceutical products.
