If you missed Mother's Day

this book from Fair Use Press might be the perfect gift.

"Sue Me, Asshole": The new book from Fair Use Press

This book's title is aimed at California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as well as his attorney, Martin D. Singer. Recently Singer threatened to sue Todd Bosley, the maker of a bobble-head caricature of the governor, for infringing on Schwarzenegger's "publicity" rights. Yes, you read that right: Singer and Schwarzenegger feel that the California governor is the first politician in history to be immune from caricature.

Additionally, Martin Singer even claims a copyright on the letter he sent to Bosley. In other words, not only is it forbidden to criticize the governor via caricature, but also one is not even allowed to expose the vicious tone of the threat letters Governor Schwarzenegger employs to enforce that moratorium.

In his letter, Singer claims that Bosley's creation of the bobble-head doll is "outrageous" and "malicious." Well, we here at Fair Use Press think that Singer needs to learn what outrageous really is. In accordance with our mission to "ridicule, shame and attack those who attempt to subvert the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution," we viciously offer our second book: Sue Me, Asshole. In addition to an appropriately shaming picture of Arnold on the cover, it contains all three pages of Singer's copyright-protected threat letter.

These people are doing the Lord's work. Support them.
