Copyright

From Encyclopedia Dramatica
Jump to: navigation, search

"Copyright" is a rallying call created by Jews and used by other butthurt fags. After the raep the "victim" of copyright infringement will call foul and sue the bad people who stole their work and made them look bad. Usually used in the event that raiders have made parody artwork of THEIR characters, but can be used as a convenient catch all when you're feeling butthurt.

It's especially lulzy when people who claim copyright infringement make a living drawing and writing Sonic/Final Fantasy/Harry Potter fanart and fanfiction.

When a butthurt fag cries "copyright infringement" remind them that they almost certainly wouldn't make an IRL court claim over their drawing of two crocodiles yiffing.

IRL[edit]

Your icons are PWNED!

According to U.S. Law, you can neatly sidestep copyright by claiming "fair use":

Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

List of things that are considered fair use[edit]

Creative Commons[edit]

Contrary to popular belief, licensing your work under a Creative Commons license won't save your ass in court if it gets stolen. Mostly because it comes from the make-believe land of hippie tree-huggers who want the whole world to be one dirty commune where everything is free and shared. They hate Republicans, capitalism, and money. Unfortunately what fucks up the whole concept is that only stupid pretentious dickheads with content on par with gradeschoolers use a Creative Commons license to stoke their e-peens by pretending someone might want to use their shit, and that they are so benevolent they will let these imaginary people do so for free.

Ass-rape of U.S. Copyright[edit]

"Valuing freedom and liberty", the great United States of America decided to make sure Disney could continue to make money and sue hosts of children's birthday parties by locking down rights to Mickey Mouse for another 20 years with the Copyright Term Extention Act of 1998. 'Cause they need more Jew golds. Sponsored by the 70s most beloved performer turned Congressman Sonny Bono. He thought copyright should last forever. Stupid fuck.

Youtube[edit]

The abuse of copyright can especially be seen in JewTube. Corporate Jews are claiming every video on there to avoid their precious worthless junk to be stolen. If you are living in a wrong country, you are fucked; most music videos are USA only, bitches.

[edit]

stands for trademark. This is usually found next to the "Good thing" and "Bad thing" phrases, as well as all GNU software (free as in Best Korea).

Also it is overused by asshole elitist fans of Monkey Island games in order to kiss the incredibly fat ass of L. Ron Gilbert, creator of those games.

A trademark is separate from a copyright, as a copyright is automatic, but a trademark must be applied for.
