I love Cave Johnson and Portal as much as the next guy, but I have to say the "anthropomorphic" part of this design seems like an afterthought.

I like this design, but I feel like this is probably in violation of a number of trademarks owned by Valve. I don't see any parody in it.

I have to agree but Ramyb gets away with barely fitting his designs into the derby topics in almost every derby. Like Ramyb's design this is unoriginal, but unlike Ramyb's designs I actually like this.

This is such a great design, Jewelwing, I hope it pushes up some more. It's got a really nice classic produce advertising feel. I hope this shirt finds a home somewhere if not here, cause it's awesome. +1!

Also I want combustable lemons, dammit!

I'm really bummed that this got rejected...I, too, hope it can find a home and print elsewhere...

Perhaps I don't understand copyright law (which I assume is the problem here), but I don't get why this would not be able to print, but other shirts (even the other portal related shirts from woot) are ok. It's really a shame though.

Because it uses the in game company logo and other things that don't just hint at the game but scream it.

I would have been very surprised if this didn't get the copyright boot. But I like what you did with the cut lemon - it looks like it is already on fire.

*coughliederkranzcough*

Are you honestly going to use that argument when another incredibly successful print here did basically the EXACT SAME THING. Don't get me wrong...if it weren't for amazon emailing me about that shirt I never would have heard of woot. That was the 1st one I bought here, and I love it. But I don't see how what that shirt did is different that what this design was trying to do before it got rejected. Gotta love double standards...

that shirt is considered a parody, much like poison, forbidden future, the binge, it came out of no where, if i only had a brain, and actual cats hooo!

this shirt used too much copyrighted material without enough parody.

So it would have been ok to "copy" things if, say, the lemons were in the act of setting a house on fire or something? I know the Aperture logo is from the game, but you never see it in such a context as an ad for Cave's lemons. You never even see the lemons if I recall right. How is this not a parody of a quote from the game?

I get what your saying, I just don't really understand where the line gets drawn on what's a parody and what's "stealing" from something, I guess...
