Apt furnished with Fedex boxes

Bill Heinze passes along a terrific story from the PHOSITA blog. Apparently FedEx is miffed at a Fedex_table man who has furnished his entire apartment with FedEx boxes. FedEx sees his work as a violation of copyright and trademark laws. The creator -- and his attorneys at the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society -- see it differently. Here's an excerpt from Melody Wirz's post at PHOSITA:

"FedEx has sent a letter insisting that the furniture itself, along with the
Internet Website and the pictures violate the copyright and trademark rights
held by FedEx. The letter even claims that the actions fall within the
purview of the DMCA. Luckily, the creator is represented by the Stanford Law
School Center for Internet and Society who sent this letter in response." More photos and info here.
