Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor is threatening to sue a Minnesota website called MNspeaks over its sale of the parodic T-shirts displayed at left (as noted at a few blogs, including TMFTML). The cease-and-desist notice from the Twin Cities law firm of Nilsson & Associates cites the usual “high probability of confusion” and possible “misleading and false inference of endorsement, approval, or sponsorship.” Publisher Rex Sorgatz says he’s almost out of the shirts anyway, and wasn’t thinking of printing up more, but “it annoys the living hell out of me that Garrison Keillor thinks he can bully me.” So he’s looking into his options with the ACLU and any “young sparky first amendment lawyer” willing to work for free. It’ll be fun to see how this case plays out, so, Rex, be well, do good work, and keep in touch.
