Here we go again with the prince


Wonder if Prince would approve of the Shirt with the Flag upside down, with the prince butterfly peace ?


And why is the American Flag upside down?

Upside down flag represents a signal of distress or danger to life or property

If you abandon a ship you put the flag upside down if possible

Other people gave put upside down us flags on t shirts so it's nothing new. She's probably been watching house of cards

I e-mailed them, so let's see if I get an answer back.


She's not in distress and isn't on a ship, so the use of the upside down flag is very disrespectful. I wonder if Prince would approve his symbol being used with an upside down flag?

It's a reference to the state of the country under trump. It's only
Y a matter of opinion if someone thinks it's disrespectful because they don't understand the meaning and intent. She prolly saw how folk go batshit crazy on the org when they don't understand basic things and don't bother googling.

No thanks, especially not with the silly upside down flag. And I’m assuming she has permission to use Prince’s love symbol and is paying royalty to the estate?

What makes you think it's in reference to Trump? I don't see Trump, or Nation anywhere on this T-shirt.


Again, I contacted them and will hopefully hear back from them.


It's a disgrace to use this upside down flag and then to put Prince's symbol on it. I can assume he wouldn't be too happy about it either.

google "sheila e donald trump"

in fact instead of asking any more questions here, just type your question into google and look at the links. or send an orgnote to fartvanbellenden as he knows everything

it's only your opinion that it's a disgrace. not a fact. prince is dead so he's not going to know or give a shit either way. sheila fell out with him a while back and never reconciled publically at least, but now she's doing all this stuff in "tribute". if you don't like it, don't buy it. no one is forcing you. you aren't going to make or lose anything as a result of her actions if you don't buy from her. it's got nothing to do with you. let the estate deal with it. twitter donald trumps communications director and tell him how you feel

I've already contacted Sheila's camp as I said, in several posts up.


I can post here if I please, especially on a post about her items that are here for sale.


I don't need to get ahold of Trump over Sheila's t-shirts. LMAO

No.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Sheila can do whatever she wants but not when she’s using someone else’s trademarked symbol. smh

NO. She is using Prince's symbol and she put a butterfly on top, which doesn't mean it's still not Prince's symbol. prince rolleyes

The new merchandise is to promote her new album Iconic. If you don't know, it's an album of political covers, hence the upside down flag. As far as the prince with the butterfly, the Estate obviously doesn't have an issue with it.

Along as she has the butterfly on top she is not violating the trademark.

In order to violate the copyright you have to copy it exactly unless variations were also trademarks. Prince did have many variations of the symbol trademarked but I do not remember a symbol with a butterfly. I am also sure Sheila E is too silly to hire an attorney.
