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 ofÂ the gangster lifestyle. Edgy and controversial, this shirt isÂ destined to become a cult favourite onÂ Surrey’s mean streets.
According to Business In Vancouver, City of SurreyÂ has sent a cease and desist letter to SurreyShirts.com for sellingÂ 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 â€œThe future starts here.â€ into â€œThe future ends here.â€
