It's all good. Seeing a few big name brony musicians getting behind supporting the kid has warmed my heart though. Rather ignorant that they punish the kid rather than the bullies.

Wow, it's saying something when someone I regard as a nut even displays common sense here in regards to how to treat someone in this situation.

I'm kind of suprised, but then again it is a common thing to be some anti-bulling activist nowadays.

Also, does Glenn Beck's photo in that article look a bit like colonel sanders?

Aye, he's working a different look these days, though I rarely see him in photos.

Update on Grayson Bruce, apparently they will allow him to wear his backpack again. The school has also basically apologized, performing a 180 with their decision and statements.

The school actually had the right idea, IMO. That kid's going to be absolutely *terrorized*. The mother pretty much put a "Hey, kids, bully the shit out of me!" sign glued onto the poor kid's back.

IKR? I mean what did "he" expect? that people wouldn't laugh at him for wearing merchandise that's primarily directed towards girls his age.

Yeah, I could see it might actually a better thing to not let him wear it, boys liking girl things is just always going to be attacked by other kids so the easiest way to stop the kid being bullied is removing the prime item.

I can't get away from this subject today. We were talking about Jeff Weise in the general forums, and it has just made my skin crawl. Not to mention sirtom93, and LiveCorpse.

What I want to know is, how does his animations differ from other parody animations like pokemon ones?

Like is it because most of them are made to be somewhat canon and they come off better than the actual show?

Because it seems like we have always had fan created animations and videos of shows, never was a big deal.

I think it might have to do with the fact that the animation style was the same as the show's...

Still, they could have just sent him a letter saying to put a disclaimer and it would have been fine.

They wouldn't have to send him anything if he just used a disclaimer in the first place.

Welp. I guess Hasbro is trying to become a member of the Copyright Gestapo. Season 4 has been one big party so far, and Hasbro just carpet bombed it with that stunt. Thanks for putting a damper on the rest of the season you pricks.

I don't really understand how putting a disclaimer would have made this entire thing not an issue. Its still not copyrighted material.

Well, everyone is making a big deal how its not his show and he doesn't own the right to use characters from it, but doesn't that like incriminate all fan art and fan animations of all other shows and cartoons? If it was just a simple mistake of not putting copyright free rights disclaimer at the start of his animations, then thats fine, just a simple mistake.

I can sympathise with the company trying to make money off of their product, because that's what they're there to do.

That varies from franchise to franchise. Mr. Swift (Aka Shadyvox) made the mistake of going after one of the few franchises with a militant legal team.

If it was just a simple mistake of not putting copyright free rights disclaimer at the start of his animations, then thats fine, just a simple mistake.

Hopefully he'll learn from it.

I hope he send Princess Celestia a letter. It's been forever since she got one.
