Can You Copyright the Human Body?

Friday, June 03, 2011

The artist who inked Mike Tyson’s infamous face tattoo unsuccesfully tried to block Warner Brothers from releasing the movie "The Hangover: 2", claiming copyright infringement because the film features a character with a similar face tattoo. The judge thought blocking the film's release would harm too many people financially, but found that the artist would likely win monetary damages at trial. Duke University Law Professor James Boyle says allowing people to copyright human bodies could set a dangerous precedent.

Sorry for the delay, but I just realized that a huge part of today's audience and media infulstructure didnt have much to do with the entertainment industry of yesterday, so fo this new crowd and for the young girls and boys comming up after the hollywood generation you need to know the definition of the term " Gold Digging ", which is a horrible way to greet a soul, it mean to like somebody just for thier property and or money instead of thier body. This is a bad thing, and many men women children in the days of older artists like a decade ago were sadly let down because you should like a person for thier body. And I'm sorry but I just got around with dealing with this issue 12 years late, a young lover should learn to be courtly, not jail court but love, which means dont ever use a person's personal property unless you like them more than for thier money, house, sucess, acess, friends or anything like that.
