Hi folks,

Before we get to legalities, what about ethics?

The danger of co-opting an indigenous people's artistic style is that
we've no notion of what is an insulting use of the style and what is

Applying a Pointilistic varnish doesn't solve the ethical issue, no
more than me claiming that claiming that "merde" is acceptable in
French and thus should be in English.

So yeah, I think the Too Hard Basket awaits.  Which is a shame,
since I do like the t-shirt's design.
