Terrible idea. The last thing we need is even MORE comic book movies.but yes, they should already be in the public domain.
One song down. How many more to go?
Fighting them and taking them to court just brings the parody to the forefront. I'm sure they'd like nothing better than a lawsuit.
I seen much worse than that posted online without it raising an eyebrow, much less people asking to be removed from the internet.But the question here isn't what is appropriate and what isn't, but the tools and methods used to suppress it. The laws that are being abused for the purposes of censorship. If the NRA doesn't like what the Yes Men are doing, they can take them to court for libel, not abuse trademark law with takedown notices.

Lawyers gotta stay employed somehow.
Frank Zappa it is then.
yes, and separate bank accounts keeps us happy.
Obviously piracy is destroying the shilling business.
If she wants cable, make her pay for it.Life without commercials is amazing though. You don't realize how truly horrible they are until they're gone from your life.
