Re: Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, and branding irons

Yes, a court could easily rule that way. It would even make a lot of sense for them to rule that way.

Not gonna happen.

Re: Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, and branding irons

Failing to defend their trademark in any meaningful way is probably what got the trademark pulled. It would be nice to pretend that if they had done enough to preserve the trademark, they still wouldn't be able to apply a trademark on "Big Mac" against a restaurant named "Supermacs&qu...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

Slack - the corporate world's answer to Discord, only worse, and with a pretty bad track record on Iranian users - decided to change their logo yesterday! Big announcement and everything, presumably a long review process since an outside design firm was involved, dozens of prototypes discussed accor...

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

My roommate used to live in a very rural part of Michigan, and she told me a while ago that there is in fact a very real reason people do that.

It's because their cars have breathalyzers in the ignitions as part of DUI convictions. But tractors and riding mowers don't.

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Yeah, I did runs when I was a kid just to have it, so that I could keep my money when I inevitably died. But it didn't ever work, not because the item wasn't there, but because if you do somehow have it in chapter 5, it fails to function. Spoilers, I guess, [spoilers]that when you do recruit Taloon,...

Re: It's raining protagonists: Let's play Dragon Warrior IV!

Actually, if Taloon never picked up the Iron Safe, it's still in the cave north of Lakanaba! You can go pick it up in Chapter 5!

Re: Pros and Cons of Punching a Nazi Just Square in the Dick

well i mean between the fact that all it does is get lots and lots of eyes on obvious racism from no-follower accounts, spreading visibility, and the fact that it came out it was run by disgraced twitter sex pest Lana Del Raytheon, thought maybe folks woulda dropped it.

yeah, love it when the apology centers the reaction of the victims, who just didn't get the satire, instead of the actions of the offender. just shoulda gone through an editor to make sure the very good intent was successfully communicated, that's all! the ideas were sound, but unpolished! obviously...
