New shirt: Colonials Moniker Farewell Tour 2022-23

Inspired by GW Alum Abroad's idea, I made another shirt, this one a mock rock band tour shirt: the Colonials Moniker Farewell Tour 2022-23. It's got the actual schedule on there. I think it's pretty funny.

Just got an email from a GW lawyer. So, it was fun while it lasted.

Unless someone has some not-my-lawyer suggestions for what I can do

Plenty of lawyers on this board, I believe.
Seriously sent you a lawyer letter? 
Do they know you're an alumnus and supporter?
Rhetorical question: How much in GW funds went to contact you over this?

“I came across your Colonial Hoops site that sells t-shirts in reference to GW. My office handles licensing & trademarks for the university and unfortunately your site is not approved/licensed to sell merchandise that references the university or its trademark names and logos. Can you please remove these items from your shop?”

Maybe it’s just the ones that actually say “GW” in the name of the shirt? I don’t use any logos or anything.

I'm not a lawyer - but I'd tell that guy to pound sand
i can go sell a shirt that says APPLE in plain text

curious what the actual lawyers around here advise
