Even Mother Nature herself does not respect our beloved Disney’s trademarks!

2009-0816 Stormtroopers

I understand why Imperial stormtroopers might want to poke fun at Princess Leia — I really do! — but that’s a pair of bootleg mouse ears on their table! How do I know? Because that particular model of mouse ear was not available a long time ago, and certainly isn’t licensed for sale in a galaxy far, far away! The shame!

Here’s where I found these ruffians.

Disney copyright violation?

I find it hard to type because of the tears in my eyes — have you ever seen anything so horrific in all your life? It’s a cake — a cake for a child’s party, mind you — on which has been placed decorations depicting Disney’s beloved icon of intellectual property horrifyingly dismembered and scattered about. This mutilation of pure goodness was found on Coolest Birthday Cakes, and I will see its horrifying image whenever I close my eyes for months to come.

Accidental Boing Boing violation?

Xeni Jardin claims in a Boingboing post that this photo was taken accidentally with an iPhone. Well, we might be able to believe that the photo itself was an accident, but — as we all know after many hours of intense, one-on-one corporate training — copyright violation is never an accident!

It takes just the smallest amount of thought gymnastics to mentally rotate the basket of foodstuffs until the unmistakable outline of Mickey Mouse’s thoroughly-copyrighted silhouette is visible. It’s a clever marketing gimmick, but though we are sure that the tortillas are delicious and healthful, they still appear to be an abomination of copyright violation!

Disney copyright violation?

Ghost Dance, and album so disrespectful of trademark law that Death Cult changed its name to The Cult out of sheer embarassment after they realized what they had done (at least we assume that’s what happened).
