Of course this place isn't immune. I don't think anyone would claim that. Look around, no one person or thing is immune to any lawsuit provided someone wants and has the finances to wrap another up in legal issues but it's always about money. If there isn't a profit concerned, no one really cares.

The part that I am struggling with is a matter of consistency. Again, why is it just NOW an issue? I doubt it would be an issue if the Saints weren't in the SB.

I sent out a "Who Dat!" email to all my friends, family and whoever else was in my contact list. Do I need a lawyer?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not really defending the NFL's aggressive intellectual property right stance... just sayin it exists.

Re: NFL Orders Shops to Stop Selling "Who Dat" Gear [Merged]

I think I speak for everyone here, when I say, that I would like to see their "rights" on paper, and also see exactly where it is, that they own the rights to "Who Dat". Because I don't think that they do. I might be wrong, but I've never seen the words, "liscensed by the NFL", on any of the "Who Dat" merchandise I've seen online, or anywhere else.

They'll be going after Mardi Gras next...
Let's litigate it in the 5th Circuit Court downtown;
so we can run these clowns out of town on a rail.

Re: NFL Orders Shops to Stop Selling "Who Dat" Gear [Merged]

Who dat sayin' dat? Who dat say who dat when I say who dat!!

The only thing I can lend to this conversation is that replacing the "th" in a word with a "d" is very common for that part of the country...for both blacks and whites...or whatever color. My mother gave me a hard time about it back in my younger years when I lived at home...and I'm white, for the record.

For the NFL to say they have a right to it...if that's what they're saying...well, I could have a case that they have to go through me first.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

I'm going to guess that it's not an issue with a shirt that just says "Who Dat". Add a NO Saints image to it and that's where the problems start.
