Why Wood you?

The message is clear: don't print images of Woody Allen without permission. We've all learnt this for free, but American Apparel have had to pay $5 million for the priviledge.

Printing iconic images of people on t-shirts has long been a popular way to make retro or even ironic clothing - there's a great bit in popular comedy show Peep Show in which protagonist Mark decries the 'veneration' of Chairman Mao on a T-shirt - but as today's outcome shows, it doesn't always pay off.
