Little guy VS. Godzilla literally - Page 2

post #21 of 34

Yeah, sorry Bob,

This thread seems to have evolved.

If you want, just yell at us, and ask a question about the original topic.

 

We'll get back on topic then,

Bear

Although I'm not one for lawyers picking on random helpless entrepreneurs the question remains, are they really playing off of Godzilla as a known and recognizable icon to enhance their marketing?

 

The person who came up with Grillzilla at their naming party surely did not put those random words together. Even the description of said events points to the fact that they are referencing, even if its in the back of their heads, Godzilla, when making the comparison.

 

Another question is: When does something so iconic move from a copyrightable entity in to main stream culture that anyone could use, and with what limits?

I think we all understand that Toho LTD has the right to protect their brand, but to this common sense Mainer it would be better for them, from a public relations stand point, to support the endeavor.

Well I for one think the Loch Ness monster, Nessy  should sue the pants off of those copy cat asshats in Japan.

An albino squirrel humm.

We have lots of black squirrels around here.

 

BTW I know where there is an albino tree. It's a coast redwood with white needles that contain no chlorophyll. I've even seen some albino limbs on redwood trees. A strange sight.

Maybe Albino Squirrels come from eating Albino Acorns...  sign10-1.gif  sorry.gif   I Couldn't Resist...

I remember seeing a "Wild America" on squirrels a while back. Apparently what we call grey squirrels actually run the gamut from black to grey to white. The little guy in my picture is the first white one that I have ever seen. The red eyes are from the guy that took the picture not having the red eye reduction feature on his camera off. I haven't seen it since spring, hopefully it wasn't taken by an eagle or a coyote(we have a lot of both up here). BTW the tree he is in is a maple, when the sap runs in the spring the squirrels will chew thru the bark to get to it.

That's very unusual. It's not an albino either.

You'd think that the several organized religions that have used the word God or Gods in their advertising for many thousands of Years would take out a class action suit on Toho for their blatant use of the word God In the word Godzilla in their literature and advertisements. It is clear to me that that wimpy tiny fake plastic/rubber Zilla used in their films is not even a live Zilla. and for sure is not in fact a God at all as their made up name falsely claims.

Why I will even bet you those cars and tiny buildings were fake too.

 

Cynic that I am.
