Greenpeace Must Pull Esso Logo Parody
July 16, 2002

The right to freedom of expression on the Internet took a hit from a
French judge in July. Greenpeace was ordered to remove its modified
Esso logo from their StopEsso campaign while a court hearing
proceeds. The judge in Paris said they can still use the words
"StopEsso," but the Esso logo with dollar signs has to go.

Greenpeace says it's a slam against the right to freedom of
expression on the Net, and ExxonMobil, the biggest oil producer in
the world, is continuing its "dirty business unhindered."
