Title should actually read – “no Yarmulke in super hero land – without royalties”.
Looks like Marvel, the company who owns the creative rights for the Spiderman super hero character is going after a Kippa shop in Jerusalem, looks like the Yarmulke maker went too far and created yarmulkes for kids baring the Spiderman trademark on them.
Besides this being the funny post of the day (when other subjects are Islamists trying to force limitations on freedom of speech in the U.S.) it does make one wonder about how modern a religion can be and not be – in the same time.
It is clear that some parents want to please their children and buy them an animated Kippa, just like the T-shirts and the shoes, this piece of clothing also joins in on the consumer marketing fiesta, however it seems very strange that with all this modern day openness for super heroes the same religion would be again organ transplants, a thing that did not exist in the ancient world (just like a Spiderman kippa) but could be much more useful.
Religious Jewish parents would let their boy put on a Kippa with a picture of a super hero, who has incredible spider power given to him by a scientific mistake he made in the lab, but would not let that same child go to a Yoga class because there is a chance he would be introduced to teachings of Buddhism.
