Isn't there another site that uses this saying? Sorta weird that you're treading on their catchphrase/motto/brandname.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Nike is a trademarked logo.

Nobody trademarked Mr Shruggie.

Ok. So you're referring to the term Mehvolution.

Just wondering which part of this would be legally questionable, since adding meh to words was thought up by the users.

(It's been a while since I studied the legal aspect of things like this, so I'm curious.)

I think it's more like Reebok selling shoes with a Nike logo on them. (Basically the same, except that Under Armour primarily sells "not-shoes" and Nike primarily sells "shoes" - unless things have changed since I wore sneakers regularly.)

It's not a legal issue! It's a stupidity issue! Why is Woot promoting, on its own shirts, their competitor!

Yes, fine. But mainly we agree: it's epically stupid!

2. Your usage of an example involving blatant copyright violations threw me off.

Calm down!

I don't know if you realize it, but this design was voted for by Wooters via the shirt.woot derby. And it's not the first "meh" shirt to print here.

I'm calm, it's not my company. Wooters voting on it is because you Woot presented the shirt as one to be voted on.

I'm not upset about this. Why would I be?

I think what we're all saying is...it's not too smart!

Take it as...you know, constructive criticism. That's all.

Reread my last post. It's not the first meh shirt to print here.

Stop looking beyond the message. Meh is a noncommittal reaction, and that's all it is. If you're thinking about a brand, that's unintendedly your thoughts.

Besides Woot has disparaged themselves in many different ways over the years. You can even buy an "I miss the old woot!" shirt here. It's fine.

(BTW, the derby entries are submitted by Wooters also.)

Great idea and I really like your execution. For a design about not caring you sure seem to have put in a lot of thought and effort to make it looks so nice.

The word “meh” has been in use long before the company was created.

Urban Dictionary has the first entry dates 2002.

And I doubt many people seeing this shirt in the wild would think it’s an advertisement.

Exactly! I have said "Meh" for over 25 years, long before I ever saw a "Meh" shirt. Same with ...."As F***" - I should have trademarked that 2 decades ago

"MEH" thanks you for the plug!

Oh, if you run for two more days you'll sweep the podium! Has that ever happened before?

Today I learned something. Before reading this thread I didn't even know about the company people mentioned. As for me, it more looks like they are promoting it, not the shirt itself)

I must have missed those shirts. I would have been protesting those.

Meanwhile, I found a completely appropriate and relevant song, but due to certain factors, I'm holding back.

How dare Woot sell something as offensive as a green t-shirt?!?

This is one of the most offensive shirts I've ever seen being sold by Woot.

And don't even get me started on the product description.

(Apologies. I'd complain, but I'm cold and I'm not liking the snow.)
