They're using a trademarked logo and obviously are not a licensed MLB vendor. I don't see how the couple finds nothing wrong with what they're doing.

Sorry, I'm on The Yanks and MLB's side in this one.

Stuff like this makes me mad because it's very easy to make it out to be a David vs. Goliath thing but really the Yankees have no choice. They have to protect their brand, even if they don't really care what this lady does. You have to show a willingness to fight for your protected logos and trademarks.

Yes. Disney fights tooth and nail to protect Mickey, Donald, et al from infringement.

Yep. I hate the Yankees as much as anyone, but you can't go and do that.
