Best Buy v. Blogger bruhaha

This post is just to echo the “support”:http://www.boingboing.net/2007/12/11/best-buy-threatens-b.html from Xeni at “BoingBoing”:http:boingboing.net for their defense of Scott Beale’s “post”:http://laughingsquid.com/improv-everywhere-best-buy-blue-polo-shirts/ at “Laughing Squid”:http://laughingsquid.com/. It looks like Beale has been served with a cease and desist letter for commenting (just commenting mind you) on an alleged trademark infringement by the group “Improv Everywhere”:http://www.improveverywhere.com/. They are apparently selling t-shirts that resemble Best Buy uniform shirts but have cleverly substituted their own group name in place of the Best Buy logo (pictured below). I love it when the internet community mobilizes against this sort of silly protectionist garbage. Power to the people!
