WTF were they expecting? I think the best outcome here is that they were shut down, but aren't going to have to pay the $150k in statutory damages for the copyright infringement and $1.5M in statutory damages for trademark infringement.

Okay, internet, let me explain something:

It's fine to like things that aren't meant for your demographic - no one should ever tell you otherwise. But for those that decry Hasbro for this, let me list out a few things you should definitely thing about:

For starters, they own the copyrights. It's their property, which means it's their decision

Secondly, unless it exists like Club Penguin, you cannot have something meant for children as an MMO. There are a lot of clueless parents who will give their child access to anything with a kid's show on it. There are a lot of sick people who will exploit their ability to hide behind a cartoon pony avatar. This is the kind of game that needs to be handled very delicately, or Hasbro, bronies, and the creators of the game will all suffer. Badly. Hasbro decided that they'd rather not let a bunch of random people make something that could potentially ruin their image.

Yeah, while, Hasbro could have certainly had just worked with the creators to get a licence and split revenues... I think the combination of kids interested in this and the whole "Bronie" adult thing at the same time makes this something they want to tred into very carefully.

That's the point. The show was designed for young females. Yes, it's fine for others to like it, even to make their own subculture, but when it starts into this territory, things can get ugly. How many parents do you think even know about the existence of bronies? How many parents do you think will get asked to install this cool game that susie found while googling "twilight sparkle game"?

In the age of 12 year olds on xbox live, how many parents do you think would go ahead and do it?
 
2012-12-10 03:59:54 PM
I hate the word Bronie. I don't know why, heck I even like cartoons meant for kids myself. But for some reason the word Bronie makes me almost want to get all stabby.

This is true. I guess we'll see on fark at some point whether or not that occurs not using any of Hasbro's material. Should be fine unless their ponies have rounded corners.

I wouldn't take that bet... Consider, they've already lost on any willfulness argument, since they've already copied Hasbro's stuff once. So, now it just comes down to if they make it sufficiently difficult that no one would be confused between the two and that there's no intimation of any copying... and that's a factual determination for a jury.
Also, think pragmatically - they want this thing to be successful with Bronies, so it's going to be "Totally Not MLP:FIM, winkwinknudgenudge," with Sparkle Midnight, and Apple Brandy, and the like, and that's not going to work given these facts.

Yes yes yes, because the only reason someone can like something is because of how easy it is to entrap children, however that works in your minds. Can't be because they find the something interesting or fun, nope, for you people it's all about the pedophilia. Really shows which group thinks more about molesting kids, doesn't it?

There are women who love Transformers, GI Joe, and other little boy things, are they also doing it for the sole purpose of raping children?

The first thing the trolls and haters always bring up when "discussing" MLP is pedophilia. They're convinced that anyone over 5 years old only pretends to like it so they can rape children. How? They never explain, they just keep screaming "PEDOS!". They're the ones obsessed with child rape.

"Target" doesn't mean "Only". People are allowed to like and enjoy things that aren't "targeted" at them.

For example, as I stated above, women and girls like "boy thing" such as Transformers and GI Joe. Are they only pretending to like them so they can rape little boys?

It amuses me how instantly defensive bronies become when people question their like of the show.

I think much of the distaste for bronies doesn't just come from the subject matter. They like a show aimed at little girls. Slightly odd, but so what? What really weirds people out is how obsessed the bronies are, how they are proud about it and try to convert us, and the sexualization of cartoon horses.

You're the ones who keep bringing up pedophilia and sexual images.

Actually Hasbro, who owns the franchise, has said from the beginning that the show is targetted at children age 5-11 and their parents.
