Unfortunately yes, the graphic doesn't translate well to small thumbnails at all - but that wasn't our primary concern. For the dotted outline to be clear at small sizes it would have to be made of huge blocky dots on the actual shirt, and that would look awful. And Teespring unfortunately doesn't give the option to upload custom thumbnails.

You have to stop putting things in such childlike, simplistic terms.
You want examples of Techdirt speaking out against bad regulation? Go see our positions on: every copyright bill of the past 10 years, every free trade agreement of the past 10 years, Europe's Right To Be Forgotten and other data protection and privacy regulations, many bills in the US such as the Cloud Computing Act, internet regulatory efforts in China and Russia and India and countless other countries, state-level attempts to regulate VOIP, etc, etc, etc. Go read our long roster of posts exposing and criticizing about regulatory capture or the revolving door between government and industry.
Criticizing bad regulations makes up a gigantic portion of what we do here.
The FCC's net neutrality regulations are virtually the only example of a tech-related government regulation we support, because we felt they were an effective solution and potentially the only workable solution at the time to a very real problem.
WHAT are you talking about? When have we ever "trashed free market principles"? We've long advocated for the power of the free market - especially in the realm of technological innovation. Is this entirely because we supported the FCC's net neutrality regulations? Get over it dude.
Again, you're pointlessly treating it as inseparable. It might be your opinion that in order to be critical of the RIAA, one must also oppose regulation in all its forms - but that sounds like simplistic nonsense to me.

Just the bad ones and the ones that promote corruption.
Oh damn, why didn't I think of that? It's so simple! All we have to do is stop the bad regulations! All this time wasted trying to parse the intricacies of law when all along the key was just to say no to bad laws.
