LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ University of Kansas officials are asking a racy online site to stop selling merchandise with the official school trademark.

The university's official licensing company wrote to the owners of a website called www.kuboobs.com in May ordering them to stop selling merchandise by Wednesday. That site was taken down as of Tuesday by web hosting company Go Daddy. Messages left with Go Daddy seeking an explanation for the action were not immediately returned.

The online store has companion sites on Facebook and Twitter encouraging people to submit photos of women wearing KU or Jayhawk T-shirts showing their chests.

The letter also asks the website's owners how much merchandise with university trademarks they sold so that damages could be assessed.
