Plagiarism

Kozyndan should sue Passion Pictures.



To add insult to injury, someone representing Passion Pictures contacted us almost two years ago asking to see samples of our work (including this panoramic) as they were interested in working with us. We sent them samples and then heard nothing from them ever again.



Kozyndan should sue for punitive damages and to get a restraining order against Sony airing the spot.

  1. Jay - change "used" to "stolen" and you'll understand why those hippies get their panties in a twist.

  2. Pat's responding to a comment which was removed. The comment was rude, which is the reason for its removal.

    The argument was that people who oppose patents and copyrights should not oppose corporations appropriating other people's ideas. The argument was internally consistent but was a "straw man" argument - a misrepresentation of another point of view.

    I don't know if the misrepresentation was due to malice or ignorance - although judging by the tone of the comment I think it's very likely due to a willful refusal to actually think about anyone else's point of view - but hopefully the correction is obvious. Nobody opposes patents and copyrights. There are many many people who oppose serious, dangerous flaws in patent and copyright law. These people are working for patent and copyright reform, not abolition.

    If you want to comment on my blog, please use good manners and think things through. Otherwise I'll regard your comments as garbage and throw them away. That's just the rules around here.
