    Also, true story: Did you know the actual specific shade of red on coke bottles is copyrighted? Yes, apparently you can copyright colors.
    Yes and Cadbury (I think only in UK and Australia, they sell real chocolate, not that Hershey crap) have copyrighted the colour purple. It says so on their wrappers.

Well, he got a call, and being the considerate and polite person he was, he decided to take the call right there in the middle of the waiting room and talk as loud as he possibly could.

    Here's the funny part. From what I could gather from his end of the conversation, he is trying to sue Paramount Pictures for using the name "The Godfather."
    Yeah. This guy was yelling at his lawyer on the phone, saying things like, "I was using that name 20 years before they made that movie! I should have legal rights to it!!"

    I was trying everything in my power not to start laughing. Like I said, this was a very large man. He could have easily sat on me and really hurt me.

    Apparently this guy has left numerous messages with "someone" at Paramount, and he is baffled as to why they aren't responding to him. Just imagine; there is some guy walking around that actually goes by the name "The Godfather." WTF!?
    I'm going to sue Nintendo for saying they created Waluigi.

    Waluigi was the one who created Nintendo.

    That's actually an interesting part of copyright and trademark law. Trump tried the same thing with 'You're Fired' - it crosses over into the fair use language in copyright laws.

    Usually if a simple common word or phrase is copyrighted, it's within a specific usage context - i.e., the word time. While it can be used with reasonable freedom, you'd find yourself pinched if you tried to start a magazine called Time!

    Yes, and the brand managers of those companies are psychotic about it. We designed/developed the Tropicana website several years ago, and the specific orange in the usage relating to juice/beverage products was trademarked - we had the folks up for a comp review, and one of my designers had strayed from the orange just a few values and one of the BM's picked up on it right off (and got all cranky about it ).

    A few weeks earlier we almost had a catastrophic mishap with a fridge filled with Minute Maid

    I was thinking the same thing. That movie has been out since '72. Why has he just now thought of filing a lawsuit?


    And as for the color thing; that's just insane. I wonder if Skittles could copyright the rainbow? Then everybody would be screwed.

    LOL. I can actually see that happening.

    That's a good story by the way.


    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That away, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes.

    NewsHeadlines - Man sues Paramont for using the name "The Godfather."

    That would definitely shut us up haha.
