Joe-College.com ordered to pay Kansas Athletics more than $660,000

The only proof you need that this is clearly a violation of a trademark is the popularity of the shirts. People buy them because they feel the shirts represent the University of Kansas. You buy the shirt...you wear it to a Jayhawks game. Clearly you see the shirts as a representation of KU. Why is this so hard to understand? Any of you who think KU is being unreasonable about this...create something...make something...a design, a logo, a work of art...then have someone else steal it, alter it in a way that is inconsistent with your mission or vision, sell it for less than it's worth, and make all sorts of money. You'd be angry too. The guy had many chances to be ethical about this situation. He passed. And now he pays.
