What Should We Add Next To The Techdirt Gear Store?

Techdirt Gear on Teespring

Get I Invented Email, Copymouse and more in the Techdirt Gear store »

Right now, there are four different designs in available in the Techdirt Gear store on Teespring: our new Copymouse gear, our limited-time I Invented Email gear, and two different styles of Techdirt logo gear. But, under Teespring’s new ongoing-order system, over time we’re going to start bringing back some of our designs from last year as permanent fixtures in the store — in some cases with tweaked or updated designs.

So, which Techdirt tees would our readers like to see first? There’s our popular Takedown gear, the controversial Copying Is Not Theft, and some less-popular but beloved-by-some options like Home Cooking Is Killing Restaurants and Math Is Not A Crime. Of course, there’s also the first t-shirt we offered and still the most popular: Nerd Harder.

We have some brand new designs in the works too and will be rolling those out in the near future, but first we want to get one or two of these classics back into rotation. In addition to letting us know which ones you’re most interested in, feel free to include your thoughts on whether the design needs an update or you’d like to see different products/colors available!

Thanks for your feedback, and thanks for supporting Techdirt.

Re: Re: Re:

I 2nd this. Please, something whitty about free speech.

We have one design related to free speech that we’ve been kicking around for many months now. We’re just not sure it’s any good. 🙂 I like it (and want to buy one for myself), but not everyone else here does. We may just release it to see, or, maybe we’ll keep kicking it around for a few more months and see if we can improve on it.

It’s tough to figure out ahead of time what shirts will really catch on.

Pure schadenfreude makes me want to see the Copying is not Theft shirt brought back first, just to tweak the people who threw fits over it last time, and Home Cooking is Killing Restaurants would be a good second choice.

For a new addition, inspired by an old trend that seems to be cropping up in the comment section perhaps a Curse you spam filters! shirt?

Celebration T-Shirt

Everyday, when I wake up, I celebrate. Trump is president, my stock portfolio is rapidly expanding, and Masnick is in federal court. How about a T-Shirt that promotes Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 of the US Constitution? Failing that, how about “RIP TechDirt”, I know a lot of people that would buy one of those.

Re: Celebration T-Shirt

Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, known as the Copyright Clause, empowers the United States Congress: To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.

I’m on board with that.

I am an XL but I know someone who would love a couple of the shirts, mainly NERD HARDER, but he needs size 6XL (yes, he’s pretty bloody hefty!) and so the current shirts don’t fit him. Any chance of a size range increase?

Some feedback for Teespring, too, the shirts they print on are very very comfortable. Every now and then I’m tempted to buy more shirts just so I have more that I enjoy wearing!

Re: Patents

How about something asinine drawn out in patent application style, with little figures and text descriptions.

I had been thinking about this general thing, but never really came up with a good specific idea. Also not sure how well I can replicate that technical drawing style – but, it’s in the back of my brainstorming mind somewhere!

Re: Re: Patents

Given how mind-numbingly stupid some of the patents that have appeared on TD have been, how about The Wheel, with ‘On a computer’ somewhere in the description.

It could include such descriptive labels as ‘Central Rotation Location’, ‘Exterior Facing Surface’, ‘Interior Facing Surface’ and ‘Weight Distribution Support Spokes’.

Streisand & Chewbacca

There needs to be a T-Shirt with the aerial photograph of Streisand’s house and then the caption, “I didn’t know this was Barbara Streisand’s house either, until she told the world in a lawsuit.”

Also, perhaps something like this:

“When your argument makes less sense than the Chewbacca Defense, it belongs in a bar, not a courtroom.” Then maybe a picture of Chewbacca drinking at a bar? Something for that would be good.

An alternative would be Chewbacca standing behind a podium in a navy blue 3-piece suit with the caption “WHen your argument makes less sense than the Chewbacca Defense, you should be a presidential candidate, not a lawyer.”

Either/or on the Chewie shirt.
