    Dudes who made memes suing Scribblenauts devs

    Nyan Cat and Keyboard Cat creators sue 'Scribblenauts' studio for using their memes | The Verge
    Holy fuck are you kidding me? Nyan cat wasn't even made by the person who's suing. Nyan cat itself is just two things that had already been made and they were pushed together. I can KINDA understand keyboard cat, but come on. It's a fucking meme.
    I can imagine how the courtroom will be.

    "Your honor, my client's intellectual property, Nyan Cat-"
    "Excuse me, what did you say?"
    "N-nyan Cat, your honor, it's a viral internet sens-"
    "Get out of my courtroom."


    God damn this is fucking stupid.

    Considering Nyan cat is legitimately copyrighted, it certainly won't get thrown out of court.
    Not sure how it would work with keyboard cat, since in the original they use a real cat and in scribblenauts you're obviously dealing with animation.

    I think it's petty either way, anything to make a buck I suppose.

    Still don't understand how he can copyright something he didn't make.

    If he made it as in, drew it or used photoshop or something then he can copyright it..

    The irony of it to me is the guy is suing for copyright infringement yet Pop-tarts are a trademarked product
    and Nyan cat is clearly a Pop-tart cat.

    Just imagining Nyan-Cat being played to the jury.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Its funny because neither of the two guys are the original owners of 'their' memes, but Im pretty sure both if not just one was copyrighted an entire year after said game came out.
