This is SO unfair to Lauren! I have severaly Fleurty Girl shirts, including the #WHODAT shirt. The No Fun League sucks.

What a bunch of ra-tards!

But on a good note, all this free publicity is getting Lauren more business! Kudos, girl! I support you 100%

I remember an interview with Ronnie James Dio, when he was asked who started the devil horns sign, at metal shows, and actually he did start doing it, but then I guess Gene Simmons came out in the press, and said he started it. Dio said according to Gene, he invented the color orange, and the word "the".

Very similar situation.

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

The Fleur de Lis has been employed in various ways since 493 with the Frankish King Clovis I and became the standard and consistent emblem of French royalty thereafter. It is essentially a "serif'ed" cross, signifying a union between the Almighty and the conference of power to His designee on earth. It has nearly always been depicted as a gold flower regardless of the background. Most notably,


IT IS ON THE NEW ORLEANS CITY FLAG SINCE 1718




The NFL would lose on summary judgment.

They can't copyright a fleur de lis, because its not even American, and its much older than even the copyright system (as someone pointed out earlier).

They can't copyright black and gold colors.

And unless they've copyrighted "who dat!", there's nothing they can do about that either.

The only issue would be if she used an exact picture of the Saints logo, emblem, the word Saints, or anything directly linked to the NFL and its properties.

You can copyright an EXPRESSION of an idea, but you can't copyright an underlying idea. Nor can you copyright something in the public domain.

She could well say that a fleur de lis and the words "WHO DAT!" are not related to The Saints football team, but is more of an expression of attitude for New Orleans residents. (i.e. "who dat", who is going to keep New Orleans from recovering)

Copyrights: How Different is Different Enough

I think it would be great for all the stores to sell black, gold or white shirts with a big 'WHO DAT!' on them. I don't care how big a company you are, you cannot licence words and I have only ever heard of 2 companies that have licenced colours and even then I don't think they would waste time proving that it is the exact same shade. No Fleur-de-Lys, no Saints logos, just a big Who Dat. I'm telling you they couldn't do a thing but everyone would still know what it was about.

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

I recently found a company online, that sells game day jerseys, all stitched, for 60 dollars each. It is an exact replica, or the same jerseys, that sell for 300 dollars, on any website. Not just the Saints, EVERY team in the NFL. Now how is it possible for them to do this, and not get notes from the NFL?
