Who's claiming copyright on the Prism logo?


Gawker's Max Read tried to set up a Zazzle store to sell t-shirts with the logo of the NSA Prism program, recently outed in a set of spectacular leaks in the Guardian and Washington Post. His store was short-lived; a copyright complaint from an unnamed party shut it down. He has researched possible copyright holders for the image, and found one candidate: Adam Hart-Davis, known for presenting BBC science-shows, who made the underlying image of a prism splitting a light-beam available on his website as a low-rez image. However, he is on vacation and is unlikely to have generated the takedown.
