The attack ads worked on Dion and Ignatieff in the past because they couldn't figure out how to handle it. Trudeau's a different story. This strategy, along with the taxpayer paid Economic Action Plan TV ads telling us how great the government is and paid partisan constituent handouts saying how crappy the opposition is are really starting to peeve us Canucks.
Dion should just stay in the background on this one and let it play out 'cause it's building up to backfire on it's own.
Besides, nobody wants to look at that stuff during the Stanley Cup playoffs!
So, people can just claim publicity rights when someone like a documentary filmmaker or a reporter says something they don't like about them. That's a great way out!
We had better get all those unauthorized biographies off the shelves too!
It seems to me the designs are just made based on good human factors. Rounded corners don't hurt. I've seen lots of counter-tops with this design as well and never hear about litigation. Maybe Samsung should try rounded rectangles with knives sticking out?
"The use of recorded music is popular at
sporting events, concert performances, festivals
and fairs, parades, circuses and many other types
of public entertainment. Authors of this music
have been paid royalties for decades; performers
and makers of sound recordings have yet to
receive any compensation in this respect".
All I can say is huh? Don't DJ's, etc already pay for the recordings? How could they possibly not receive any compensation?
If they don't, they probably should look at the collection societies for some dysfunction or at least talk to someone who understands business..
