|It doesn't say "Go Canucks!" but this sign from Canuck Security Services at a |
constuction site at Fir Street between 6th and 7th Avenue in Vancouver might be in violation of the NHL's draconian copyright laws & goonish enforcers!
What idiots the National Hockey League executives are.
How else to explain their crackdown on a Vancouver radio station and a car dealership for urging people to rally on the Vancouver Canucks in their exciting playoff series on the way to the Stanley Cup.
Rock 101 has been told via an NHL lawyer's letter to cease and desist with a promotion that raises funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by offering fans the chance to take a sledgehammer to a van with the Canucks' opponents logo on it for $10 a pop.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps seriously ill children by granting them a wish - like a trip to Disneyland - with the support of donors
Vancouver Kingsway Honda also got an NHL lawyer's letter demanding they take down "Go Canucks Go" and "Honk for the Canucks" signs - probably because Honda isn't a Canucks official sponsor - but really!
These boneheads need to encourage fans - not threaten them.
So I ask this question - will the NHL lawyers send ominous warnings to the owners of Canuck Security Services, whose sign is pictured above at a construction site on Fir Street in Vancouver?
Will any company who has "Canuck" in its name or "Stanley" or "Cup" be told to shut the puck up?
And send me a letter too because I say "Go Canucks Go!" and I'm not an official sponsor either - just a fan!
