They're Coming For Your Che Guevara Onesie

che_onesie.jpgNo, not the uber-capitalist trademark enforcers from Gerber, the uber-capitalist trademark enforcers from Marxist revolutionary rebel Che Guevara's relatives.

While squabbling with each other over who owns the copyright to the Korda photo of Che that became the world-famous stencil, Guevara's family members are vowing to fight unauthorized commercial use of the image around the world. [Uh, never mind that Korda's heirs own the copyright? And that the stencil, which arguably made the photo famous, was created by Jim Fitzpatrick. So get in line, Senora Guevara.]

Anyway, Appaman is still making their sweet Che bodysuits for kids, this season they're in a mushroom or powder blue, and Babesta has last fall's orange ones for $25. Get them before a flotilla of Cuban lawyers lands at Coney Island and starts serving Appaman with cease&desist orders.
