Which is doubly ironic considering how they have made a fortune on adapting fairy tales and other existing stories that don't have copyright protection.

That's the American way, bro!

She's going to be President one day.  And she'll be Baberaham Lincoln:

Aliens.  Always aliens.

I love it when people come into a message board and immediately begin to mix it up.  I mean, Jesus, at least say hello!  Do you walk into a room full of strangers, pick a random woman, and tell her she's fat? - buildingcincinnati

It's a cool effect, but definitely one that I could picture being abused with blatant advertising.

I think it'd be cool to show a shot from inside the empire looking out at the projector. That's one hell of a light bulb.

Nordstrom has lit the internet on fire with another expensive product that many are calling ridiculous.

On its website, the department store is selling a $425 pair of jeans that is covered in fake mud.
The Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans feature obvious splashes of what Nordstrom calls "caked-on muddy coating," giving the effect of being worn on a day in the dirt.

In its description for the pants, the company says they "embody rugged, Americana workwear that's seen some hard-working action" and that, when worn, they show "you're not afraid to get down and dirty."

When he discovered the product this week, "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe posted about them on his website, saying the Nordstrom jeans were proof of "our country's war on work."

Hey, if you guys are interested, I have a bunch of pre-mud stained jeans and even some covered in paint that I can sell you. 33x32 boot cut and straight-leg. I'll only charge you $350 (with free shipping!) If you want to get "down and dirty" PM me.

I wonder what kind of "hard-working action" causes extra mud to be in the crotch area, like that?

Mike Rowe is a white collar guy who is paid a lot of money to pretend to be a blue collar, working class guy on TV. And since he wears jeans and a t-shirt on TV instead of a suit, people buy it.

The reason I own "work pants" is so I don't have to throw out my jeans from them getting like that on the weekends.

Now, here's a guy who understands economics!

Quote
The Ball family created yet another firestorm on Thursday when they unveiled Lonzo Ball's first signature shoe under the family brand, the ZO2, with a price tag of $495.

Last week, it was reported that Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas were spurning the younger Ball as a potential athlete endorser because his father, LaVar, rejected a traditional endorsement deal and demanded the family's Big Baller Brand cobrand with one of the athletic-shoe giants.

On Friday, LaVar was asked on "The Dan Le Batard Show" why he decided to charge $495 for the shoes. In typical LaVar fashion, his answer was part confidence, part humor, part simplicity, and a whole lot of boisterous.

"I figured that's what the shoe was worth," Ball told Le Batard. "I liked the way it sounds. You see, when you are your own owner, you can come up with any price you want."

As for why the shoe was specifically priced at $495 and not, say, $500, Ball again acted like the question was a bit absurd.

"Five hundred dollars?! Four-ninety-five sounds better," Ball said. "I like three different digits."

Hideous... :drunk: :roll:

On Mickey Mouse, class of 1928:

Disney's copyright for Mickey expires in 2023, unless the copyright law is changed by Congress.
http://artlawjournal.com/mickey-mouse-keeps-changing-copyright-law/

"since “no work created during your lifetime will, without conscious action by its creator, become available for you to build upon.”"

False.   They are not available to make money on. 

What is called amateur "fanfic" or "fanart" is all over the 'net
