Take a look at this!
Someone with tons of time, massive talent, and a complete disregard for the letter, spirit, intent, precedent, propriety, and protection of copyright created this (obviously counterfeit) WALL-E monstrosity. It wasn’t even made entirely from scratch, since we’re pretty sure we can see parts of old Star Tours robots and Number 5 from Short Circuit in there.
It’s not clear whether or not this is a functional replica of WALL-E or just a thumb-your-nose-at-Disney’s-legal-team statue, but even if it is functional, we’re certain there’s no way it can clean, stack, burrow, and love like the real WALL-E!
Plus, they left it out in the snow, which is not good for robots.
Someone needs to tell this artist that princes don’t let princesses do drugs (or violate Disney copyrights).
We found this painting on a web site and were very disappointed — has the internet still not learned that you just can’t mess with copyright law? Apparently not!
This derivative work steps on the intellectual property of two parties — Vincent Van Gogh and The Walt Disney Company. The re-use of Van Gogh’s work isn’t problematic — he’s old, dead, and not a Disney character, and his work has been neither licensed nor purchased by Disney — but the misuse of congenitally disfigured iconic Mickey Mouse hat certainly is.
We need to nip this type of massively disallowable artistic mashup in the bud. If we don’t, what will come next? Starry Night over Sleeping Beauty Castle? Endless funky-looking Walt Disney self portraits? The horror!
On The Soup on July 2, 2010, they were discussing some television show about artists, and one of the artists presented this as his latest work:
What kind of horrible twisting of purity is this? It’s like an H.R. Giger Disneyland acid-flashback nightmare! I tell you this, when the time comes that my official portrait must be made, I’m certainly not letting this nut paint it!
Somebody get this guy a shirt before Disney sues the pants off him. And while you’re at it, I think I need some new eyeballs (shudder).
This image, apparently from an Australian beer ad, is the most horribly distasteful and disrespectful thing I’ve seen since that awful “Little Mermaid” tuna advertisement of years ago. Not only is Snow White smoking and sharing a bed with seven grown men, but the bed is horribly inaccurate — Snow White couldn’t have fit so comfortably in a real dwarf bed!
You can read an article about this travesty on Slashfood.
This was found on Neill’s Blog. I don’t know what a “Modok” is, but odds are it doesn’t have permission from Disney’s lawyers to store Mouseketeer memories in its computer brain.
This painting, titled “Hi Ho in the Woods,” was created by artist, professional clown, convicted mass murderer, and copyright violator John Wayne Gacy. We found it on the Museum Syndicate Web site. Even posting this to the blog creeps us out beyond belief. Can you imagine how it must make Snow White feel?
