Birdies Panties, an underwear boutique in Kansas City, designed some Royals-themed women's underwear. The "Lucky Royals boyshorts" have "Take the Crown" and a crowned K.C. on the backside of the garment.
One of the store's owners, Peregrine Honig, told Osterheldt, "They came in and there were two guys. 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."
Homeland Security took the underwear and had Honig sign a statement that she would cease using the logo.
Despite the emblem being handmade, it still violated copyright because of the interlocking "KC" symbol.
