Reports claim the official merchandiser for Canadian progressive rockers Rush filed a lawsuit recently seeking a judge’s order that it can use to direct federal marshals and authorize local and state police and agents hired by the company to seize bootleg T-shirts and similar items during the band’s U.S. tour.
They’e not fucking around.
The lawsuit was filed by Ontario, Canada-based Showtech Merchandising Inc., and authored by New Jersey attorney Jules Zalon.
Zalon said he has “gotten probably 250 or 300 of these types of orders” on behalf of entertainment acts. “These days bands make more money from merchandise than from concert tickets,” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Buying bogus merch is wrong. Worse than supporting the terrorists.
A band only really makes money via merch. So, don’t be a dick…buy from the venue, not the shady fucks circling the parking lots.
