    The biggest shame in all of this is that they had 8 years to get CUM trademarked and did nothing.

    Are they looking to only trademark THE on its own? If so, it’s unorthodox, but I get it.

    Also, that shirt would have a pretty outstanding profit margin, can’t imagine it would cost much to print.
