Re: Pity The Fool Without This Shirt


As this was a quickly thrown together design, I'm not heartbroken over the rejection. I'm just curious the specific reasoning. Is it a celebrity likeness issue, a copyright issue, or something else?

I promise, my intent is not to whine, but legitimate curiosity.

It's because of the "The A Team" logo

Fair 'nuff. Out of curiousity, if I change it so it's not the logo (and I'm chuffed that I actually managed to recreate it well enough to get rejected!) but just says "The A Team," would that be acceptable, or is using that phrase taboo?

The name itself will be a problem also, you could use "The A Group", "The B Team" (like someone else did), or something similar, but not the original name.

The name of the show/movie ("The A-Team") is the problem, I suspect. I think you can play off of it, but you probably can't use it, even if it's not the logo, itself.

Redone. Not as snappy, on a different color shirt this time, and it's not even close to 5 o'clock.
