"Matt Wardman of the Wardman Wire asks an interesting question on the 
mySociety:public mailing list. He had created a couple of mug designs 
poking fun at the former MP Phillip Woolas and submitted them to the 
online platform Spreadshirt. According to his blog post they refused to 
accept the design..."

An interesting analysis of copyright, personality rights, data 
protection legislation, freedom of speech, and the different laws of 
England&Wales and Germany. Very relevant to internet age art and politics.
