    Depends how much they're marketing and how big they plan on going with these things. Pretty sure it's like sampling in that it's not legit but if you fly under the radar you'll be ok.

    Yeh thats what im thinking... been suggesting that maybe rewording the quote a little would be a better idea than directly quoting.

    Yeh i very much doubt they will be marketed at all let alone alone sell enough to make anyone notice.

    Also... STAY CALM AND...... whatever.... is an old WW2 poster that is getting absolutly obliterated as we all know and there doesnt seem to be much care for copywrite there?? this is their argument.

    Well fuck it... im just going to go ahead and do it... and let them take the flack if any.
