Does anybody know if the image of the Gameboy is copyrighted material?

I thought so but I imagine Disco looked before making this design.

It's a parody. I used no actual text found on the gameboy, and the shape is altered to not look like the Game Boy 100%. Parody = OK

Anybody that sees the grey thing on this shirt knows 100% that they're looking at a Gameboy. I don't really see how this is parody.

I know parody's okay. Still looks mighty close, but then again, I haven't gone and compared to anything, although there's a picture on the wikipedia page if I remember correctly.

Parody's all well and good, but I don't think this is parody and I've certainly seen designs nixed for far less than this:

I played 'yoshi' and 'tetris' way to much as a young lad.

wasn't into yoshi myself, as i was fairly young when i was playing the system, but yeah, tetris is still fun. I love the new one they have on the DS, so simple, but so fun. WiFi ftw.

Does anyone notice the topography of this shirt? Look a little odd? Cool design though!

it's actually the one thing that's keeping me from voting for the shirt. Given woot's rejection of shirts with 2 reactors across the chest, I'm surprised this wasn't challenged. Cool idea, though.

My daughter really wants this shirt, but I'm not ready to deal with that topography and my kids yet! She's a Nintendo-maniac.

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Seeing that I'd agree it's a bit close. Too close for parody. We'll see what woot says.

when you say 'topography' are you referring to breasticular placement of the eggshells? I'm confused..

Nah, that particular designer doesn't get bitter when he gets rejected. He's pretty open to the idea of subjective rejections, to be honest. He only wishes shirt quality to be added to the list of reasons for possible rejection.

I will be shocked if Woot does not reject this one for copyright reasons, no matter what alterations may have been made to the image.

I remember saving up money - in increments of $.25, $1, and $5 - to get mine when I was 10...I effing loved that thing. :-)
