Dick move on Romney's part, but is what Romney doing illegal or just immoral/unethical?
 
2012-10-22 11:15:05 PM  
My question is this: is the line directly from Berg's movie/TV script, or is it lifted from Bissinger's book? In which case, Bissinger is a Romney supporter.

Still, dick move.

Well, we'll see if Peter Berg sues him, but isn't it his intellectual property? Obviously someone with more than a GED in Law would know more and should chime in.

"Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose" is directly from the Berg script for the pilot and a wholly invented line for the TV show, it was NOT used at Odessa Permian or in Buzz's book at all.

In Mitt Romney's world, Jason Street would not be able to get health insurance because of his pre-existing condition.

That should tell you all you need to know about this hypocritical and shameless plagiarism.

"Full hearts?"

Pretty sure we're talking about "full wallets" for the rich he's going to be taking good care of the next 4 years. Because they create jobs or something.

Something derpy.

Wait, is this the same Peter Berg the director of Battleship? I'm debating who I want to win in this fight. Better nuke them both from orbit just to be sure.

It's a thin case at best. The plaintiff will need to have rock-hard evidence that Romney intentionally infringed that particular registered copyrighted material and made at least $25,000 off it.

What a bunch of whiny losers the first four posters are.

It's called 'Fair Use'.

Deal with it.

Oh and btw OBAMA is rich, too, to the tune of several millions of dollars but I guess that's ok because he's
a 'Progressive' and rich CONSERVATIVES are bad.

Conservatives can't tell. That's why they employ undocumented workers without moral conflict since profit is involved.

Nah, it doesn't appear to clearly fit withing the guidelines for "fair use."

And, Obama earned his money the old fashioned way. He worked for it.

Here's the difference:

Romney is that kinda guy that, were you to meet hiim face-to-face, he would put on a good show of concern and discuss your ideals and priorities, and what you want most out of a leader... Then later you'd see him dragging your name out in a stump speech as an endorsement that he understands "the poors."

And when you're like, "What? I'm not that p... also, Dude, 'The Poors' is not the preferred nomenclature. 'Impoverished Americans,' please."

And then Romney would summon legions of fanatics like you to swarm in denouncing "political correctness," while he slinks on to the next venue & continues abusing your name.

Fair use doesn't qualify if you attach said stolen line to a piece of merchandise and sell it without cutting the copyright owner in on the profits.

That's why copyright laws exist.

Romney vows to fight China and their stealing of our intellectual property, and he turns around and is guilty of the same thing.

Holy shiat, this asshole was using that sacred phrase? FARK YOU

Seriously, this is the worst thing of the entire campaign. I'm not kidding.
 
2012-10-23 12:48:21 AM  
Mr. Romney, you decry the intellectual property theft by companies in China, and yet you steal a slogan from an American without permission. Is this like Mr. Reagan misappropriating Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" without understanding what it meant with respect to the war in Vietnam?

How do you feel about Becky Sproles' abortion? Should she have "borrowed money from her parents"?

stoli n coke: Fair use doesn't qualify if you attach said stolen line to a piece of merchandise and sell it without cutting the copyright owner in on the profits.


Not true.

There is a four factor test to fair use.

1.) the purpose and character of your use
2.) the nature of the copyrighted work
3.) the amount and substantiality of the portion taken, and
4.) the effect of the use upon the potential market.

It is by definition a subjective question. By no means are you prevented from using that for profit if enough of even one of the other factors makes it a fair use example.

I can't imagine that Romney's use would pass the 4-factor test, but still.
