Fat chance. They vetted each character design of those episodes through their lawyers to ensure there was enough of a difference that it fell under "fair use". That, and the fact that he waited all this time before getting all lawsuit-y, I'm thinking just another attention whore. Probably hoping for a Lollipop King comeback.

The clock starts ticking once the original copyright holder discovers the infringement, not from when the infringement occurs. It is possible this guy didn't find out about the content in this South Park episode until recently.

Just because someone has a copyright, doesn't mean they have to monitor every piece of media that is created; mainstream or otherwise.

2012-10-17 12:53:10 AM
Years ago, I remember reading an interview with the guys where they said they were going to quit South Park shortly because they wouldn't want to be doing it years from now (paraphrased).

After watching the documentary "Six days to air" on Netflix, I have even more respect for the guys keeping the series going. I always assumed that they kept the show going because it was a paycheck and why not? After seeing the documentary, I wondered if they keep it going because they're keeping a number of people employed to make it happen.

While I haven't been a huge fan of all episodes, I appreciate the satire and parody that goes into each one. That they can "crap out" an episode in six days is amazing to me. Keep it coming, guys.

Nope. English has pretty much always been a bottom up, open source tongue. That is the beautiful thing about it. Its rules enables the easy adoption of new words and grammar as the people who speak it change. Attempts to formalize it have resulted in the nonsensical and ugly structures that are found when you don't end sentences with prepositions or won't split an infinitive.

This is only in relation to the five years after it aired comment, I don't know the story and I don't really care. That part of it annoyed me.

We are not locked into to one specific experience. Just because 20 million people have seen something, what does that matter? It's funny because when something reaches an audience of that many people, it's hard to imagine who isn't watching it rather than who is. Especially if the people around you are all(or some) a part of the audience. That becomes the normality in the eyes of the subject, no? It's difficult to remove your experience from the experience of others. You know that there are people out there that don't have what you have or see what you see - but you don't see them or interact with them (and vice versa) so they aren't a tangible. Until you come across them, like in this article, and their foreignness becomes apparent.

I guess I'm asking you this: Why do I have to know something you know, when you know it, just because you know it then? Because I didn't know about this. Never heard of it until now. (And it isn't to say I don't enjoy entertainment media or have never laughed at South Park) I might say this would be different if it came to a matter of importance or education but this is after all South Park.

That's it. Just wanted to say that.
