Are you sitting down Beyond, About to defend big business.
Now, I often have it out with you about economic issues. But this example is a no brainer to me.
I just saw on the news that a new comedy movie is spoofing Mike Tyson's tatoo. The artist in reality is claiming copywrite violation.
I feel this fuckwad has no case because the Waner Brothers movie is a comedy and "fair use" applies and parody is protected by law.
The scene in the movie shows a white guy, who wakes up from a sleep, I would assume after getting drunk in the clip, wakes up with to be told that he has the Mike Tyson tatoo. ANY FUCKING MORON knows that the movie is a comedy and is not trying to sell the tatoo as "Warner Brother's" owned.
And to a lesser extent, I cant stand, although I am a fan, that Weird Al bothers to ask about his parodies. Time after time our courts have rightfully protected parody and fair use.
There has to be beyond merely using something, evidence that you are fraudulently trying to sell something as your own.
There, another example of the willingness and ability not think black and white. I defend Warner Brothers use of this tatoo, ESPECIALLY in the context of a comedy.
This stupid lawsuit get's my "what the fuck award".
