Quote:HBO slaps takedown demand on 13-year-old girl's painting because it used 'Winter is coming

Quote:Pic It turns out King Joffrey isn't the biggest scumbag at HBO after all.

A father says lawyers at the cable TV network demanded his 13-year-old daughter's artwork be taken off the internet after she drew a lovely picture titled "winter is coming" and posted the image to arts'n'craft website RedBubble.

"My daughter, who happens to be autistic, was doing an art challenge called Huevember which consisted of doing a piece of art based on a different colour as you worked your way round a colour wheel," Jonathan Wilcox, of Edwinstowe in the UK, told The Register on Thursday.

"She was uploading her pictures to a variety of sites and sharing them on Facebook. For this particular piece, she decided to title it 'winter is coming.' I do not believe she uploaded the picture to RedBubble to make any particular financial gain, she just thought it a sensible place to put it."

and then....

Quote:ccording to HBO's legal team, the above illustration infringes the entertainment giant's intellectual property from its hit TV show Game of Thrones: HBO owns US trademarks on a line repeatedly used in the series, "winter is coming."

Ill be titling some of my Art 'Winter is coming" I hope to encourage a lot of my Artist friends to do the same. As well as cancel your HBO. We have the power to speak with our wallets.

Someone should trademark "Winter is here" and all variants before HBO does.

I love GoT but that was real douchebaggery on HBO's part.

Something you will notice about HBO shows is that the first season or so they tend to be overly sexual. After a few seasons the sex scenes taper off. It is a common formula with their shows.
