Copyright and Birthday Cakes


Tags Monopoly and Competition

Dues to threats of copyright infringement lawsuits, this bakery now refuses to customize birthday cakes with the kids' beloved images, e.g. if a kid wants a Nemo cake, too bad. After all, how dare that little hooligan punk kid want to "steal" the "property" of Disney et al.? What right does he have to have an orange fish on his cake? The Bill of Rights does not say anything at all about a right-to-put-an-orange-Nemo-resembling-fish-on-a-birthday-cake. Does it? No, I didn't think so!
