AbbVie, manufacturer of the painkiller Vicodin, told the Sentinel on Friday that the company was alerted Aug. 27 to the "unauthorized" use of the Vicodin brand name on shirts sold by Kitson.

Yeah, fark the Attorney General, who would get shot down on free speech grounds anyway.  It's the trademark infringement that's going to get them.

Considering that this POS state has some serious farking problems when it comes to illegal scrips for all of these drugs, I'm pretty damned sure this is just the state of florida doing damage control on that issue.

The ones with a Ganga leaf are ok, though.
 
2013-09-07 12:53:51 AM
I thought huge international corporations had dozens of in-house lawyers to handle this kind of thing.  Or I suppose the drug company could be a major donor to the powers-that-be in Florida.

Dear Subby: Adderall does not help you 'chill'. It focuses you.

/same for Concerta

I was in Kitson a few weeks ago.  I guess I must have missed those shirts.

Their t-shirts are actually kind of cool (not the ones in question), but at 60 bucks(!) for a t-shirt - No way, jose.

One of Rick Scott's crusades around here is getting rid of the pill mills and the doctors who prescribe ridiculous amounts of these type of drugs. I'm not surprised that Tallahassee is biatching about this.

Also subby, the attorney general is Pam Bondi who last time I checked was a woman.

The really stupid thing about this is there are idiots that would pay $98 for a long sleeve tshirt.

I want a shirt that says 'Once I started taking the PROZAC in  smaller doses I was O.K.'

FTFA - "the legal leaders told Kitson that "prescription drug abuse is not fun or humorous."

I'm sure glad we have people like Ag Bondi to help me figure out whats fun and humorous, and what isn't

The controversial prescription drug shirts sell for $58 and $98 for short and long-sleeved versions.

There's the real crime. Who dafuq pays that much for a shirt with a funny saying?

"Tongue-in-cheek products that normalize and promote prescription drug abuse only serve to reinforce the misperception about the danger associated with abusing medicine and put more teens at risk," Pasierb's letter said.

OH NO THE CHUUUULDRUUUN!!!111!! I wonder what these clods have to say about the awesome shirts they sell at Spencer's and the like advocating for alcohol and/or weed abuse?
 
2013-09-07 01:07:10 AM
The illegal script capital of the word going after t-shirts... Yep.. That will solve all the problems for sure..

That was the first thing I thought. Those are all trademarked brand names. Try alprazolam, amphetamine salts, and hydrocodone w/ acetaminophen. Not as catchy but not nearly as legally problematic.
 
2013-09-07 01:14:09 AM
....at first I thought, okay - this could be like the medical alert bracelets
....then I thought, okay - this could be a fair warning to any potential hook-up partners
....then I thought, okay - in Florida, some cop will use this as probable cause, taser the wearer, who will then die and there will be a long trial with Fox News heads chiming in about how tee-shirts are the hoodies of those who live in the tropics
....then I saw the price and laughed

Florida's AG is Pam Bondi, and she isn't a he, most definitely.  You may want to research her to get some idea about why she'd be associated with such a dumb idea.

like having the name of a drug on the back of your shirt will "make" you do those drugs...
 
2013-09-07 01:20:25 AM
Wanna really do something about advertising drugs? Do something to get all those ads for prescription medication off TV. Shiats irritating and most of the time the laundry list of side effects seems worse than whatever problem they are trying to treat

Yogimus: trademark infringement only applies in similar industries.


From my literally seconds of study of trademark law, I believe that a case could be made that these are famous trademarks that are having their value diluted by this.

Yeah... I think the most the AG would be able to do is contact the legal counsel for the drug companies.

Crap.  I bet my MS-13 shirts are next.  They're a hit among the illegal farm workers including those whoPam Bondi, the Florida Attorney General is low enough to take bribes from anyone, were brought in by illegal immigrant smugglers who also import things like... meth.

/have to get enough keywords in for this biography research of hers

styckx: The illegal script capital of the word going after t-shirts... Yep.. That will solve all the problems for sure..


Just came to say the same thing.  Good to see my main girl Pam is focusing on the root cause of prescription drug abuse... t-shirts.  You doctors with degrees from Cabo Medical and Barber School keep on pumping out those scripts to folks from out of state.

Quit shiatting on Dr. Feelgood.  I'll take him any day over the farkheads that will set a broken metacarpal and give you 5 measly farking hydrocodone.

Hey!  That is unfair to Wal-Mart.

Why do they have the wrong numbers on the jerseys?  Should be Xanax 2, Vicodin 10 Adderall 30.  Or they could just take a picture of my nightstand

We have advertising laws concerning such things.  1 shirt with "Vicodin" on it on a child would be felony child abuse/exploitation; against the manufacturer.
 
2013-09-07 02:24:26 AM
Drug companies can advertise on TV with neat little cartoon commercials promising a better life.  That is fine.

Just stop those pop culture references on t-shirts slightly mocking the drug companies and American culture.

At a time when roughly seven people die each day in Florida from prescription drug overdoses, the legal leaders told Kitson that "prescription drug abuse is not fun or humorous."

The ironic part is that Broward county in Florida didn't have full reporting of controlled prescription drug sales and until very recently allowed pain clinics to sell stuff like oxy or xanax by the shiatload.  Florida is part of the problem.

This is just control of copyright laws for the drug companies.

Maybe they can find a "Victor Odin" who owns a full-service snake store and work out a deal.

The real crime is that sentence. If it is $98 for short and long-sleeved versions, what is the $58 for? The invisible sleeves, the negative sleeves?

Only a journalism major (or a teacher) could be stupid enough to come up with that sentence.

Otherwise, fark the Florida AG, unless they are also going after Budweiser and Coors t-shirts, because, you know, piling your car into a soccer mom's van while drunk and decapitating a gaggle of kids is totes funville.
