I think Tim Fay knows more about this end of things than I, but from what I know,
making tapes of the show for friends at no charge won't get your whiskers pulled
or your claws removed, but selling such things would. I think the T-Shirts
could conceivably also fall within this category. Copyrighted artwork is a bit
of a bitch though...the extent to which people who do this kind of stuff are hunted down
and exterminated varies greatly with the organization.

Still, I want my Kats Tee - so Teddy can get stuffed.
