What Will Trent Reznor Think of What Just Happened in Alberta?

There’s a new sheriff in Alberta in the form of premier Rachel Notley. She’s reached out to the mayors of the province’s two biggest cities–Naheed Nenshi of Calgary and Don Iveson of Edmonton–to create a “building Alberta together” initiative. Such a plan needed a spiffy logo to capture the public’s imagination.

Hmm. Notley. Iveson. Nenshi. N.I.N. Wait! I’ve got it!

Lame, cool or copyright infringement? You decide.

    SO copyright infringement! Hope he goes after them.

  2. Loren says:

    No trouble over the Notley Crue shirts during the election campaign.. Guess we’ll see if Trent is more lawsuit-happy.

  3. Steve H says:

    It’s parody. Distastefully cheesy, but parody. It’s protected under fair dealing.
