Ongoing news in the whitewashing of Avatar

Reportedly Viacom is forcing a protest store to remove products based on claims of copyright violation (all items were being sold at cost - store was only there to expand awareness, not make profit. AFAIK items did not include images the movie people own, only terminology, like "Avatar" they may have trademarked but certainly couldn't have copyrighted, so far as I understand copyright law).

Personally I think the store should keep them up and enlist the ACLU but they aren't me...

...so it's easy for me to say that.

Anyway, the report linked to provides the link to comment to Viacom if you wish to complain about this stupid throwing around of legal weight to silence protest.
