A little late for that Brownmark Films? Really seriously they're kidding right?

I lol'd. I couldn't believe it when I read it either, but given how Viacom gets videos of SP taken down all the time, I think it's only fair it gets a taste of its own medicine. Probably won't change anything, but Viacom should know how it feels to be on the receiving end.

Reading up on this "company" "Brownmark Entertainment" (Special Entertainment) these people embarress the hell out of me because I live in the same area. I wish these guys would take the damn thing to Chicago where it belongs.

Dammit these people make this area look like we're a bunch of complete idiots. Ugh

Special Entertainment
116 East Pleasant Street,Suite #1E1, Milwaukee, WI 53212
(414) 263-4180

I should drop in on these guys. But they'd probably threaten to seeew me in Denmark.

Until I read this story, I thought that "What What" originated from the episode.

I'm not willing to check out the original to determine whether this is 'parody' or copyright infringement. If those guys from Brownmark sent a "thank you" note, then it's pretty douchey of them to be suing now.

Wow. What What In The But is now going to go to litigation. What a story. Thanks for posting about this, kfgg. Wow. I hope the statute of limitations is over for this lawsuit to be brought now in 2010. If not, I feel it being a parody should be a slam-dunk win for M&T. All i can say is: Wow :o

Of all the things M & T could be sued for, I doubt this one will go through. No one cares, "Brownmark".

Jesus f*cking christ...

I laughed my ASS off when I saw Butters doing What What In The Butt. He was the perfect choice to be used to parody that song XD

Yeah, Butter's song is basically the exact same thing that Samwell did, but that was what made it funny, and it was CLEARLY a parody. They weren't taking credit for making up the song.

It truly was "homage" as the article said the email said. What do I think? Some company is going down the crapper, and they are scrambling for cash... This won't get very far.
I LOVE KENNY! Second favorite characters: Kyle and Butters

I read this story last night before it was even here on the BBS, and I dismissed it right away as a bogus case. Like the article mentions, parodies are exempt from copyright infringement laws. Though what constitutes a parody isn't necessarily engraved in stone, it's highly obvious that it is. And didn't Matt & Trey receive a 'thank you' letter from the creator or something after it aired?

As we say on NS when noobs are involved, fire the ignore cannons. In this case, fire the ignore missile battery and drop ignore flares. Bogus case, the end.

I'm actually a little surprised that Sally Struthers never sued them. Of course Trey said in a commentary that he felt bad for making her cry over Starvin' Marvin. Then of course he did it again in Starvin' Marvin in Space. :roll:
