Re: They Will Rule Us


I'm never gonna get the hang of this copyright stuff. The faces are completely different. It seems to me... the only way is to turn them around.

Are they recognizable as Pinky and the Brain? Are they doing 'normal' things for Pinky and the Brain? If the answer to both is yes, it will likely be rejected. If either is no, then it might qualify as parody--but still could be rejected depending on the copyright holder. Since P&B are now Disney, and Disney tends to not play well with others, rejection is likely.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

By your logic the "Pinky and the Brain" Shirt in the fog should get rejected too. But we all know
that's not gonna happen because turning characters around seems to be the loophole no matter how obvious it is.

That's why the Pikachu/Thor Shirt is also still around.

I should just give up on trying to do a parody shirt. -_-'

I suspect the lawyers are in discussion on that one, actually.
