FedEx Furniture  
In the spirit of thrift and alumni directories, Jose Avila has built all of the furniture in his apartment out of FedEx boxes. Now FedEx, in a fit of legal ambiguity, is suing him for DMCA (WTF?) violations.

Surprisingly enough, the furniture looks super comfy.

Awesome. I don't understand how "a whole bunch of FedEx boxes" cost less than "a thrift store couch", though.

It's because they're free.

Ah, okay! I knew some were, but I didn't remember whether they all were.

Um, violations of any sort?? They should be paying the guy for advertising!!

It's not like they have a copyright on cardboard. Next thing you know, AOL will be suing people who use their free CDs as coasters.

He's getting sued for copyright violations? WTF? It's not like he's creating another and using their boxes for it. Then I can imagine a lawsuit, but not for creating FedEx furniture and displaying it on a website. Stupid company.
