zerkalo: Chris Deberg?
whidbey: Oh and I'm guessing the wristbands were made in China. Good job, there.
andrewagill: give me doughnuts: andrewagill: 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 use2.) the nature of the copyrighted work3.) the amount and substantiality of the portion taken, and4.) 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.You forgot the rest of the first factor: "... including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes."But it doesn't prohibit commercial use of the stuff. It's only one of the four factors. For example, in MATTEL INC. v. WALKING MOUNTAIN PRODUCTIONS:In the action before us, Plaintiff Mattel Corporation asks us to prohibit Defendant artist Thomas Forsythe from producing and selling photographs containing Mattel's "Barbie" doll. Most of Forsythe's photos portray a nude Barbie in danger of being attacked by vintage household appliances. Mattel argues that his photos infringe on their copyrights, trademarks, and trade dress. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291 and affirm the district court's grant of summary judgment to Forsythe.[...]Having balanced the four § 107 fair use factors, we hold that Forsythe's work constitutes fair use under § 107's exception. His work is a parody of Barbie and highly transformative. The amount of Mattel's figure that he used was justified. His infringement had no discernable impact on Mattel's market for derivative uses. Finally, the benefits to the public in allowing such use - allowing artistic freedom and expression and criticism of a cultural icon - are great. Allowing Forsythe's use serves the aims o ...
STRYPERSWINE: Even if Michael Moore wanted to use my music, I would be flattered that I was popular enough to be wanted for that sort of thing and I would thank him for the the further publicity.
lelio: 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.
douchebag/hater: What a bunch of whiny losers the first four posters are.It's called 'Fair Use'.
redqueenmeg: whidbey: Oh and I'm guessing the wristbands were made in China. Good job, there.If they're fan-made, maybe, but if they're official campaign swag, I'm betting not. I'm not a mittfan, but having official campaign stuff made somewhere other than the USA is like running for President as a Democrat or Republican and not having your logo be red, white, and blue. It's just not done, and as many mistakes as Romney's had, Chinese-made official swag hasn't been one thus far (amusing photoshops notwithstanding).

ManRay: My assumption is you don't own a trademark or copyright on a line just because it exists in a script.If you could, Lucas would have sued everyone that said " May the Force be with you " in the last 35 years.
give me doughnuts: Please note the selected word. You seem to be implying that the Romney campaign's use of the copyrighted phrases are used in a parodic manner.
andrewagill: I can't imagine that Romney's use would pass the 4-factor test, but still.
stoli n coke: ManRay: My assumption is you don't own a trademark or copyright on a line just because it exists in a script.If you could, Lucas would have sued everyone that said " May the Force be with you " in the last 35 years.However, Lucas can, and has sued people that put "May the Force be with you," on a T-shirt they're trying to sell.Your assumption is wrong. If you look at the credits or any movie or look into the first couple of pages of any book, you'll see something called a copyright.That means whoever owns the copyright has a say on how that line, a.k.a. intellectual property, is marketed or merchandised. The only exception to this is if it is done in parody.
MrPenny: douchebag/hater: 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'sa 'Progressive' and rich CONSERVATIVES are bad.Farking allah you people are stupid.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.
