I still can’t beleive this….I just recieved the following letter via registered mail. Then, I take a look at this guys site and what do I find but this!!!
There is no way that I am going to remove the Bushplug now (cause it feels so good! ). It’s time for action…
Dear Mr. Damitio:
Little, Brown, and Grist is a national trademark law firm. We have presented many briefs before the United States Supreme Court, and we have argued before the High Court and in state and federal courts throughout the nation. Little, Brown, and Grist has offices in Florida, Virginia and hundreds of affiliate attorneys licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We frequently provide assistance to various organizations including Celebrity Buttplugs International.
It has recently come to our attention that your web site, http://www.terrorsuspect.com, is selling an item you refer to as the Bushplug.
You appear to believe that the Bushplug is exempt from federal intellectual property laws as a “parody” due to “fair use.” Unfortunately, the intricacies of federal law cannot adequately be covered on “Wikipedia” due to the variety of facts addressed by courts in numerous cases. Your use of the image of George W. Bush as an anal toy is indeed a violation of copyright law and is not covered by “fair use.” Your altered image of the President substantially diminishes the potential value of the image of the President as utilized by our client on billboards across America and online. Moreover, your infringing activity creates the false impression that George W. Bush is sponsoring or endorsing the “Bushplug”, in violation of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125, as it contains the “E” logo mark that belongs to the office of the President. You have not been licensed or authorized to use either the image or the face belonging to George W. Bush as an anal toy.
We are confident that you will understand our insistence that you immediately cease selling the “Bushplug” on your web site or in any other venue. Please confirm your agreement to this request, and please note your confirmation that no other use is being or will be made of the anal sex toy bearing the image of George W. Bush, by signing and returning an original signature on a copy of this letter at the address shown above, no later than June 15, 2007. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation with this request.
Jimmy Forear , Esq.

Haha, he signed his name Esq. You up against an Esquire, baby!
Seriously dude no action is needed, this guy is full of shit up to his eyeballs. Just post up any further entertaining letters he sends to you.
I think it is outstanding myself 🙂
One guy I worked for in a photo lab should be comorated in a similar manner. At least he would get my nomination given with the greatest enthusiasim !!
We got medical images on occassion, I won’t name the institution but they are probably the most prolific proctologist in the city; I don’t think there is a pain-in-the-ass so-to-speak they haven’t seen!! These guys are good!!
Anyway, on my last day I thought how cool it would be to print up a bunch of the assholes, quite literally, and paste them up all over the building in the customer areas. Of course a job like this would demand all but most strong of industrial adhesives.
It was a fun idea!! I wonder if he would have prosecuted me if I had. I mean, think about it. the judge having read the charges against me could not help to think to himself, “Mr xxxxxx, do you think he was trying to tell you something??”
It would have been excellent
I didn’t do it of course, and, hey, I can certainly understand where you are coming from, I’m not sure what part of “You Suck!!” does this guy need to have!! I think you have it absolutely correct!! GOOD SHOW!!
