Looks like even Katy Perry is getting sick of the ubiquitous "left shark" micro-meme-phenomenon. CNN reports that artist Fernando Sosa has received a cease-and-desist letter from Perry's lawyers for the below 3D-printed "left shark" figurine he recently offered for sale on Shapeways.
Perry's lawyers request not only that Sosa discontinue distribution of the figurines, but that he also hand over any current "left shark" figurines in his possession.
Here is the cease and desist from Katy perry's lawyers.. Note that I never mentioned her name or implied that i got permission to make this.. #leftshark #rightshark #3dprint
