Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance. Touch my monkey.
Touch him! Love him! Liebe mein affe-mienke!
Hmm, thanks for the offer. I think I might register the domain soon, though i've been withholding it until I can see whether the traffic dies down or not. Like, if people soon grow bored of the site, not much point in ordering the domain. Then again, if they don't... Hosting wise, we're doing 1.2-1.9gb per day. So far, I can handle the traffic, and my ISP hasn't complained just yet. --Chronarion 12:18, 15 Mar 2005 (EST)
Hm. While it's not really plagurism, i'd recommend that you don't press that issue. The thing is, we release our stuff under a public license, Creative Commons, and I can see the similarity between the two. Yours could be definitely considered a derivative work, and we don't have the license rights to redistribute. We probably couldn't get away with licensing it under CC when it's that close. Also, parody is covered under the US consitution, but only if it's a parody of the matter itself, not the subject. I'd say, maybe just try a different angle, it's too close to the source, and I can't enforce CC on it. --Chronarion 16:54, 15 Mar 2005 (EST)
Hi, this is La Hapalo. Sorry for not responding earlier, I just woke up. On reviewing the actual King Missile lyrics you linked, yes they are different, so I probably jumped the gun a little; certainly it isn't a flat-out copyright violation. However, I would say it may still be borderline plagiarism, since you took a humorous song, changed a few words and concepts, and made a (very) similarly humorous song. Anyway, I won't be worried if you want to restore your revision, and I won't delete it again. — La hapalo 01:13, 16 Mar 2005 (EST)
Ah, but the US constitution protects parody of a topic using that topic. It doesn't, however, protect parody of a thing using a different thing. So, if the topic was that particular song, you could legally be protected under parody statutes, but you cannot use say, "Can't touch this" to parody OJ Simpson legally. See the court case recently from JibJab. Personally, I don't really give half a damn unless we're sued.--Chronarion 13:48, 16 Mar 2005 (EST)
Ah, but is OJ Simpson copyrighted? --Savethemooses 13:55, 16 Mar 2005 (EST)
Hmm, i'll definitely do some research on parody. Legal stuff is kinda interesting :) --Chronarion 01:32, 21 Mar 2005 (EST)
edit Any special reason

- In reply to your message on my talk page, it wasn't me who blocked you, it was Codeine. I don't tend to ask questions and block without waiting for a response. So, regarding that specific ban issue, you might want to talk it over with him. Ciao. 18:55, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
