Blog about a Best Buy parody, get legal threats

Rob @ 12:23 PM

NYC-based comedy troupe Improv Everywhere is known for staging elaborate public pranks, including one last year in which their agents stormed a Best Buy store dressed as employees. Last month, Best Buy served Improv Everywhere with a Cease-and-Desist letter over an Improv Everywhere shirt inspired by the incident, which parodied Best Buy's logo and uniform.

Here's where it gets really interesting. Best Buy have also served blogger Scott Beale with a C&D, for merely blogging about the existence of the shirts.

I wonder if I'll get hit with anything for blogging about the guy who blogged about the shirts.
