Garrison Keillor Tries To Stifle Blogger

Garrison Keillor, the owner and creator and writer and watchdog of all things Lake Woebegon apparently doesn't like bloggers using any of his material for parody. Now, you'd think that a big name would understand what parody means. In fact courts many times have dismissed cases of infringement because of the legitimate use of copyrighted and trademarked material for comedic purposes to entertain and ridicule.

Because Keillor is a flaming Bush-hating liberal he apparently believes he is exempt from being the butt of any jokes. As any liberal does. He's bullying a blogger into taking a parody t-shirt off of his website. Read and see.
