Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"

"After some discussion Jay and MetalOllie teamed up to put the image on t-shirts at CafePress. I have no idea if anyone was actually buying it, but earlier today Lender announced that CafePress had shut down the page for trademark infringement. Whose trademark? Frito-Lay's, the makers of Cheetos, of course!

Click the image to open in full size.

It's not at all clear if Frito-Lay made this request or if it's just CafePress worrying about future Frito-Lay concerns. Lender asked CafePress for clarification, and all they sent back was a link to Frito Lay's corporate contact page, telling him to contact Frito Lay to ask for authorization, implying that Cafe Press made this decision on its own. But, really, there appears to be a ton of other merchandise hosted at CafePress that mentions Cheetos in some form or another, so if the company is suddenly concerned about trademark threats from Frito-Lay, it seems to be targeting rather selectively."

Yes, Cheeto, IMO, has entered the language as as generic of a term as Kleenex, Jello, Band-Aid and Thermos.

CafePress sucks on this issue. Hopefully the person trying to hawk the shirt finds someone else w/o as much of a corporate dick stuck up its ass.
