From the artist of Smokey Says Resist Shirt:
“Thank you for your support! I am writing a nice, big ol’ check to NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council)!
I’ve noticed countless sites ripping off this design and it tiring. I created it to get the message out, and for that, I am grateful. However, I want the proceeds going where I desire, not a thief’s pocket. Please, only purchase from my chosen vendors. Thanks!
Smokey says Resist… OK then, am guessing, since so many of them that there’s not a copyright/trademark on Smokey the Bear’s image–it’s all over these ‘new’ Smokey Says Resit t-shirt designs?! curious…
(it’s that ex-marketing major in me ‘n also wanting to know if they’re making them are they donating something to the ’cause’ – resist, protest, environment, Nat’l Parks, whatever else helpful than someone clever made it up/put it online/making a buck… Oh America… sigh… let’s do both, make good/do good…)
