Che Guevara photog heirs send take down

The heirs of the deceased photographer Alberto Korda, best known for the iconic photograph of Che Guevara that has adorned Tshirts and college dorm posters for fifty years, have issued a takedown demand to Liberty Maniacs over its sales of parody items that display the photo’s cap and hair but replace Guevara’s visage with, alternately, Donald Trump and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
