Che Guevara: capitalist pig
So I spent a bunch of time preparing this image (and a similar one), putting it up on Cafe Press, then arranging the images on various shirts and stickers for sale at The Pool Bar Gift Shop. But guess what? Cafe Press pulled them over copyright concerns! Yes, Che Guevara, well his survivors at least, are protecting Che's profitability.
Indeed, after doing a lot of poking around, it appears that an Atlanta-based clothing company may have purchased the rights to the image. In any event, there are sufficient questions over the copyrights that I don't want to mess with it.
I guess I'll have to work on a different design.
