The T, mug, & jacket are OK too.
The chaps and chapettes at El Reg merchandising tentacle Cash'n'Carrion have been strapping a few ideas to the apparel ducking stool to see if they float, and have just sent over a couple of pics of a proposed Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) T-shirt in a retro comic book stylee. It's pretty fetching, we reckon, …
"*Damn the line spacings....I demand ascii art friendly forum postings."
I have to admit the 'prior to assembly' ascii art works for me given this launch in Merca[pton] is taking a bit of time to sort out.
No shit. Apparently, in Merca[pton], Bezos is allowed to parachute his 'payload' on to the ground from 307,000 feet close to a place that looks a bit like it might blow up if the wind was in the wrong direction and you dropped your load on it whilst Musk has to spunk his 'payload' in the sea.
ITMT the SPB are not allowed to launch a balloon?
Presumably Bezos has pockets for the insurance payouts or might flick the switch on/off govs share of EC if they did not let him party on 'ground' zero. I guess it sucks to be Musk.
Sigh... should have gone with my original idea. Ho-hum.
But who holds the copy right?
The original creator holds the copyright.
El Reg would hold the copyright for the initial logos, graphic samples, etc. offered for use. The creator of the derivative work would hold the copyright for that work (including a limited, non-redistributable licence for the El Reg held works). By submitting your work to El Reg, you would be granting them a licence to use, and redistribute, your work with attribution and the considerations awarded to the winners of said contest.
-- At least that would be a fair and equitable way of working the submissions, and I sincerely hope our beloved Reg would not pull some shenanigans like claiming that all submissions were "works for hire". Especially given the, ah, energetic comment threads on copyright articles.
Addition: If one were to create a graphic without using any El Reg provided works, it obviously would not be a derivative work, and the copyright would be held solely by the creator. In this case, submission should grant El Reg a non-exclusive licence to use, and redistribute, the work ...continued as above.
Always on the look out for new T Shirts, particularly if they are humorous and/or tell a story.
But... If they are kept in the same warehouse as my Pint glass, I might just keep my money in my pocket.
(Pint glass STILL not arrived - Maybe the FAA are holding up the delivery due to the Septic's aversion to proper beer??)
