Censorship of Radical Islam From War On Terror Lexicon

Censorship of Radical Islam

Pursuant to the recent murders by “radical Islamic terrorists” of staff at Charlie Hebro a satirical weekly newspaper in France, many people and organizations alike have sought false security beneath the blanket of political correctness, cowering in fear at any such utterance used to define the ideology undergirding these acts of atrocity. Choosing instead to use such terminology as “violent extremists”, the contagion of cowardice has spread beyond notable public figures such as President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, to more common entities – now, including Zazzle.

These individual designs were available in the marketplace through Zazzle as print on demand merchandise. Following the terrorist attacks in Paris, each has since been removed…

Intellectual Property Rights

Having recently discovered one of my designs (Ted Cruz 2016) being used on a Facebook site without permission, I contacted the user by email, and then again later through Twitter requesting that the unauthorized use of my design be discontinued. With no reply after a week, I contacted Facebook directly and filed an intellectual property right violation report. After providing the appropriate information as evidence of ownership, Facebook responded swiftly by removing the aforementioned design within the hour – thanks Facebook!
