An individual who attempts to protect his copyright in a product he created is a “jerk”, but the media corporations which appropriated his property, slapped THEIR copyrights on his work, and broadcast it around the world in the course of operating their franchises are “just doing business” and can safely brush off his claims when he seeks compensation from them?
Fine. You deserve to be ripped off in the same manner, whenever these entities “just do business” at your expense. For example, when the “Too Big To Fail” banksters vandalize the land records system in the name of “efficiency” in processing mortgages, and the title to your home becomes clouded as a result: suck it up, buddy. Don’t be a jerk and complain about it. Just roll with the flow, grin and bear it.
Under the circumstances, yes. I can agree with going after the media, but the family? You support that? Not me, I have more class, thanks.
