City of Surrey angry over parody T-shirts
Our signature “Future Dies Here” design turns heads, raises eyebrows and gets people talking. Don’t let the stylized hand gun scare you, this shirt carries a deadly warning about the risks of the gangster lifestyle. Edgy and controversial, this shirt is destined to become a cult favourite on Surrey’s mean streets.
According to Business In Vancouver, City of Surrey has sent a cease and desist letter to SurreyShirts.com for selling hoodies and T-shirts that highlight the city’s crime problem.
The city claims the SurreyShirts.com is violating its copyright by parodying its official logo and slogan “The future starts here.” into “The future ends here.”
