CNBC asks Grygiel about Amazon sellers turning memes into merchandise

November 18, 2019

Jennifer Grygiel, assistant professor of communications, spoke to CNBC for their article, "Amazon is home to thriving businesses that turn TikTok memes into merchandise."

“It may be that [sellers] realized that with this stuff, it’s more open because it hasn’t been copyrighted,” says Grygiel. “Or they might be able to make quick sales before anyone tries to bring it under their control legally.”
