I wonder if you can just create a graphic of a Trump-like hairdo instead?

Make America Great Again isn't even original Trump...if you do some research, you can find the same slogan was used in the Reagan election campaign circa 1980. I find it hard to believe there would be legal grounds for that one if in fact he had enough free time to pursue it.

The problem with all posts like this are simply that unless you are an IP Attorney who just happens to browse T-Shirt Forums, you're probably not qualified to give a completely accurate statement. Copyright law (and more often Trademark law) has lots of gray areas. I just attended a brief talk by an IP Attorney two weeks ago and there were a dozen or so questions asked. The answer to almost all 12 of them started with, "IT DEPENDS".

There is a good rule of thumb. When it comes to trying to commercialize the likeness of someone else, even if they are a public figure and you think you have the rule of law on your side, the ultimate winner is usually the one with the most money and the best attorney.

^ That is the practical truth of IP, with the added stipulation that the threat of a lawsuit is enough to intimidate most to cease and desist since they don't have the time or money for court.

Part Two is that actually going to court would in some cases do more damage to the public figure by in effect giving free publicity to the person who is using their image.

If one is in this only for the money, fighting would be stupid, unless you have the resources and experience of someone like T-Shirt Hell. I'm not making anti-Trump stuff just for the money, so I might well choose not to do the "smart" thing

Trump’s actions have often been rash, ignorant, and chaotic. Yet some of his individual foreign policies are substantially better than his opponents. I support trump and I also wear trump attire without any fear...I get my stuff from the Shield Republic.

When President Reagan was president there were all kinds of polaroid pictures taken on street corners with Reagan statues.
Trump would be cool with that especially for doing it on shirts.
My thoughts.
