Woot Airstream shirt

For those familiar with Woot.com: an Airstream shirt has been submitted for this week's Derby. If you've purchased something from Woot.com, you are eligible to vote for it to actually be printed!

I especially like the Cape Hatteras reference given the WDCU Outer Banks rally is next week! There's a flamingo in the design, too.

Seems a little 'east-coast-centric' to me, but they threw in a Space Needle, so I'm cool with it Awesome design, actually. I'd love to have one of those in my collection.

I could see this on a Hawaiian theme shirt. Would have to pick one up for the next rally. Now where'd I put that blender and those tiki torches?

The fact that is says "AIRSTREAM" and you're selling it for a profit infringes on AIRSTREAM'S trade Mark rights. In reality, you should have written permission from Airstream Inc.

Hi guys, I'm the artist for this design. I stopped by to tell you all about the shirt and someone already did! Thanks Skater! I love airstreams - spend lots of time in mine - so I was super excited to get to make a little art about it.

If the fact it says Airstream is a problem, woot will take care of it. They have lawyers that are really good at determining that kind of thing. At the moment it's not being sold at all, so I don't think there's an issue. It would have to win first, and if selling it would infringe on anyone's rights, then woot will choose not to sell it.

I just drew a picture of a 43 year old thing I own, so I didn't think it would hurt anything. Maybe by enthusiasm got the best of me!

Welcome! I think it's an awesome design, I hope they make it I'm no lawyer, but I have read with interest about similar cases, where people couldn't produce artwork of a VW Beetle for example, because VW called it infringement. Personally, I think it's ridiculous. When an artist draws a picture of an item that exists in real life, I don't think the company that originally created it should have anything to say about it. But that's just me. Lawyers don't let common sense get in the way.

Super Artwork

I worked for over 15 years, in a second career, as a Graphics Designer and wanted to compliment you on a great graphic. The design, colors, and execution, are fantastic.....you deserve to win!

I hope Airstream Central elects not to interfere, but as soon as you make a dime.....they probably will. Just change the license plate to your current one and present it as a rendering of your personal property.

Again, nice work!!

Ron

Hi, jewelwing - I'm "rmarquet" on Woot, so you can see I'm excited about this shirt, and I knew the fellow Airstreamers would be, too. I was talking about the copyright thing with my wife, and we came to the same conclusion you did - Woot will kill it if they think it's a problem.

It all depends on the company; Ford, for example, has absolutely no problem with a Mercury Cougar owners' club I'm use use names like "CougarFest" and have drawings of Cougars in the artwork for the event. If Airstream has a problem with it, I'm sure they would be jumping all over the rally ads we see on this site and plenty of other unlicensed Airstream T-shirts.

My wife suggested if Woot does drop it, you shop it to Airstream for possible sale.

Anyway, good luck jewelwing.

hi jewel

the folks offering warnings are JUST trying 2 b helpful...

IF this is sold any place public/commercial YES a/s could object to the use of their name/image.

otoh you CAN contact their marketing department and 'splain.

perhaps they'll give u permission,

this is one of those cases where ASKING in advance

is better than seeking forgiveness afterward.
__________

my understand is you MIGHT be able to use the image withOUT the wording...

but don't take this as gospel.
__________

besides IF u ask and they ok it, it's possible you'd could sell it via a/s and that crazy website...

(((btw does wt OWN the design and rights IF the shirt is chosen???)))

that would make 4 a more messy mess.

cheers

Well woot took the shirt out of the contest - but not for the reasons you might think! They didn't like that the presentation image didn't have a heather grey background. lol!

So I've resubmitted it which means if you still want to vote for it, you'll have to do it again. Sorry for the inconvenience, but please do vote again if you can. Thanks.

Here's the new link.
