CafePress took down another one of my images. This time it was one I had titled The Obama DeathStar. I do wonder how they decide which of their own rules to follow. Manipulation of someone elses logo is not allowed. I admit that is exactly what this is. But, I have have seen much lower quality parodys of other logos, such as Wal-Mart.
Update: I contacted Cafe Press asking about why my Obama DeathStar had to be removed while other similar designs were allowed. I specified two examples using the Obama logo and two using an images of the deathstar. Here is the reply I received:
