A lingerie shop owner in Kansas City says her store was raided by Homeland Security agents Monday morning over a few dozen pair of panties she made in honor of her hometown baseball team.
“They came in and there were two guys” Ms. Honig told the Kansas City Star. “I asked one of them what size he needed and he showed me a badge and took me outside. They told me they were from Homeland Security and we were violating copyright laws.”
The panties, printed in Kansas City by Lindquist Press, read, “Take the Crown,” with “KC” across the bottom, the newspaper reported.
Officers reportedly explained that by connecting the “K” and the “C,” she infringed on major league baseball copyright. The panties were confiscated and Ms. Honig said she signed a statement saying she wouldn’t use the logo, the Star reported.
“Can I get away with this?” she asked followers on her public page, receiving more than 100 likes.
The Kansas City Royals ended up losing 7-1 to the San Francisco Giants Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Series.
