Come ON, Lucasfilm.



Okay, I haven't the slightest idea whether or not the WPA National Park posters are out of copyright, but it's the principle of the thing that pisses me off so much upon finding these Star Wars posters for sale on their official Zazzle site. Paying an homage to the utterly gorgeous poster styles of the 30's is one thing, but to blatanty repurpose the art and the slap a Tauntaun and a Lucasfilm copyright on it? That's just disgusting.

It's hard enough to find the original artists for these things, and it just feels like adding insult to injury to treat them as if they're clip art. I don't even know if there's a legitimate legal complaint for me to make here, I'm just fuming that they can pull off this sort of crap.
