A Bottom Shelf Public Service Announcement



I originally made this for fun. (Note: If you are in the field of literacy and you are a photoshop dork, yes this is considered fun. Stop laughing.) Then I thought I'd offer these up on Cafepress so that you could buy your own pro-literacy merchandise.

Unfortunately, there were questions as to whether it was parody (good) or copyright infringement (bad). But if enough people are interested in sporting their own YouRead merchandise, let me know and I'll see if I can outfox Youtube's legal team.

Minh, I actually think this should be safely parody - and they're definitely a public service announcement. I think I should give these out as gifts!

How do you I buy one? Does it come in cat sizes? How about a onesie?

I like this! And surely it should be parody and not infringment (take that, corporate yobos), but I am not a patent/trademark lawyer.
