He should make them himself, profit from the idea, and get sued for copyright infringement by Bobby (or whoever came up with the design)

He should just imagine he has one.

Pirate Fish Button Badges - Where are they?

Postby St John the Blasphemist on Wed Sep 20, 2006 8:39 am

I just risked giving out my credit card details for a 'touched by his noodly appendage' t-shirt, and checked if I could throw a pirate fish button badge into the same order, but alas, they don't seem to exist. I think cafepress or one of the other retailers that specialise in FSM gear should release a pirate fish button badge. White on black. 2.54cm (1 inch) diameter.

I also think I should get one for free for stating the obvious.

Hmm, 24 views and no votes. I can see everyone cares about my well being.

I said you should imagine you have one.

I'm not sure on the exact law, but I'm pretty sure there's nothing illegal about creating a pin with the FSM image on it, and wearing it, maybe making more for friends, but always for [u]free[/i]

wouldn't hurt to pm bobby anyway.

No - you should express your feelings openly. That's why I created this poll.

According to the FSM website, all imagery is copyrighted, but images are allowed to be used for non-profit purposes. If I were to sell badges, I'd only be able to make enough to cover costs & no more. According to Australian copyright law, half of any profit made in an unauthorised copyright infringement should be given to the copyright holder (I think). In the case of Pirate Fish badges on their own with no other products being sold, I think that would probably equate to about $5.00, and the way I do business I'd probably be more likely to give them away on a whim to those who declare their faith in the Noodly One.

If you make some not for profit, can I have one? :D I'm in Australia too, so it would just need an envelope. ;)

Australia Post are very picky about what goes into a standard envelope. Large objects tend to damage the rollers on their machines. I haven't decided whether or not I should get a bunch made up (have you seen the prices of button badge presses?) to hand around (I don't have a reason to do it for profit so I may as well do it for fun). If you live in Brisbane then maybe I can hand deliver it.

Yeah, but like this:

And I think it would look better on a 32mm (1 1/4") badge rather then the 25.4mm (1") one I previously suggested.

I voted that you should get eveything for free

so I want reciprocity-- free stuff, so what fun connections do you have- to get free stuff? me? well I do know several unemployed Gorillas and Chimpanzees and they share rocks and crayons but not really good to trade on the open market. (of course I am being silly, new antibiotics always make me a lunatic) anyway you can't have my rocks or crayons( and hay, the Orangs always stuff their hay out the drop box- I really think they are showing true reciprocity, we drop treats to them via the drop box and they stuff hay back) they were gifts ( I am a zoo enrichment volunteer so I do really do this stuff- I also paint their nails)

how do we get permission or whatever to do these-- they can be ordered by lots of 100 to 10,000 online

like affordable buttons.com

and I am sure that cafepress could do them too.
My mantra
Just save the farkin Gorillas will you! They don't have spell check- but they do need YOU/US...
