“We’re peeping while you’re sleeping!” That, underneath a logo of the NSA, was sufficient to get T-shirt vendor Dan McCall a cease and desist order from the National Security Agency.
McCall intends to fight the order as an infringement on his First Amendment right to parody his government. He had better be careful, though. The very laws that made NSA a target worthy of lampoon have also given muscle to enforcement actions. More people have been jammed up with overreaching criminal charges on either drug laws or infringement of intellectual property than are known to have been charged with terrorism.
