You might say that this is a desecration of a copyrighted item as opposed to a pirating or illegal duplication of one, but I think that we can all agree that if the law does not currently consider this type of abuse intensely illegal, it should. It’s an anti-Disney hate crime, pure and simple — like burning a Dreamworks logo on Roy Disney’s lawn.

This painting, titled “Hi Ho in the Woods,” was created by artist, professional clown, convicted mass murderer, and copyright violator John Wayne Gacy. We found it on the Museum Syndicate Web site.
