    Trucker Hats: First Amendment Protection

    Discussion started by DETO - Apr 13, 2004

    <span style='color:pink'>Trucker Hats: First Amendment Protection
    How did we all miss last week's US District Court ruling in Mastrovincenzo v. City of New York? Two "graffiti artists" named Mastro and Nac got an injunction against the city; they sell tagged trucker hats on the street without a license, and argued (successfully!) that, as art, they're protected by the First Amendment. Says the court:

    • Plaintiffs offer for sale in public places without a license articles of clothing that they individually decorate with text and images in what they label a graffiti style. [...] Both Plaintiffs paint articles of clothing, especially hats, using paint pens and spray cans, and sell them from sidewalk displays. [...] Each charges between $10 and $100 per hat.

    See, they don't need a license, because, somehow, taking a sharpie to a trucker hat makes it art. The real question: why aren't we all downtown demonstrating to put these trucker hat-decorating monsters back in jail?

    actually trucker hats should be banned, as well as the people who wear them should have indeceny charges leveled against them

    i doubt they notice, all they do is drive a truck on the highway all day and go inside afterwards... or something.

    the funny thing is yall were rocking them and posting pictures of them half a year ago.
