Illogicomedia Disowned?


A recent comment in the forums suggested that the Illogicomedia Foundation was guilty of copyright trademark infringement. An odd reversal of opinion, given that the same user (in the same message thread) lauded the IF's flag waving and parody of the Wikimedia Foundation.

It was at this point that I discovered a quote from a dear friend that suggested that a number of ?pedians have disowned the Illogicomedia Foundation. Say it ain't so?

Read and comment here.

Not copyright infringement. Trademark infringement. In the sense that the Illogicomedia Foundation is not whatever you say it is: it is a trademark of Illogicopedia. There's a big difference between the kind of claim involved in copyright and the kind of claim involved in trademark. Wikia has never violated our copyrights although there was a period during which they violated our trademarks, which they have worked to stop doing by switching to "Wackypedia": something which we appreciate.

That's all well and good, Nerd42, but just because the answer to the question of the meaning of life, the universe and everything is encoded into your user name, I do not think this gives you the right to replace Sarah Palin in that picture of her holding a moose head. I presume she shot that moose from a helicopter, since that is the state-sanctioned method of hunting animals in the frozen tundra of Alaska.

Next time you chose to slander the hot peppers of Algernon, just remember the mouse does not fall far from the tree.
