Enterprising Copyright Infringement

Over at the on-demand print co, Cafe Press, someone named "Angry Writer" has created a series of items for sale with the phrase "I Collect Rejection Letters."  For instance you can get a mouse pad, a t-shirt, pillows, notebooks, framed tiles, teddy bears, or even a gross of magnets, envelope seals, note cards and stickers.  (Also sweatshirts, jerseys, hoodies, baby onesies and so much more!) Way to merchandise.  Oh well, you snooze, you lose.  Loser: that would be me.  Hey, wait...AW didn't include mugs; maybe I can still corner that marker. (Problem: I don't think I could be that cheesy if I tried.)

That type of shoes makes confusion, isn't it?

You can do the same thing at zazzle.com, essentially another cafepress.

Maybe I can merchandise the shoes with an LROD label and take this blog in an entirely different direction. I like the zazzle idea.

Did you delete my comment about the shoes being creepy? Why are you censoring me? Because you are seriously about to market them?

They're STILL CREEPY and I WON'T BUY THEM! Unless maybe you manage to get the words "Made from literary agent's feet" tattooed on the side.

I think I deleted your comment by accident. Trigger finger. Anyway: "From the Hide of Genuine Literary Agent." I love it.
