Is there something that we don't know?
« on: August 15, 2011, 01:30 PM »
Just checking my favorite eBay for crazy deals, and found one interesting item:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Festool-Power-Tools-Logo-Black-T-Shirt-All-Size-Limited-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem27bd61ab20QQitemZ170681019168QQptZApparelQ5fMerchandise


Is there something that we don't know?

Have fun.

P.S. Shane, Peter, Seth, do we need separate category?

Yes, I know. I think we need category "Jokes".  There are few non-Festool affiliated items, watches, clocks, T-shirts. Those folks can't even steal right logo....

Amazingly that link doesn't show the "Festool" shirts any longer.  I suspect that someone has been busy in the background.   (not me)  [big grin]

I'm sorry.  I saw Canon Logos in my image.  At the top of the page it says that this listing has ended because the item is no longer available.  I took that to mean that it was pulled by ebay after being notified of infringement.

That is what normally happens when Shane finds out about one of these.
