F U Fox Lawyers by *CallMePo
Fuck you FOX lawyers, Jayne hats belong to the fans! You can’t stop people from making their own.
More than 10 years ago Firefly had a 4 month run and FOX decided to cancel the show despite it’s popularity.
After many attempts to restart the show, FOX had pretty much abandoned the show and gave the fans the finger saying we don’t care about this show and it’s fanbase - it’s never coming back.
They stopped creating merchandise for it and pretty much left it to the fans to create their own memorabilia.
More than 10 years later, FOX lawyers decide that maybe there is money to be made and then decide to go on a spree of sending out Cease & Desist orders to fans who make stuff to share and sell to browncoats.
These crafters have been propping up the fanbase that FOX long abandoned!
So instead of saying to fans…
"Sorry for not realizing how popular Firefly was and thanks for keeping it popular for over a decade."
they are saying…
"Oh? The show was actually popular and we could have been making money for over a decade on it? Fuck you fans, we want that money now!"
