Idk if this woman could or not but I know Riot Games once lost a lawsuit because a World Cup theme skin they made looked too much like an actual player and copied some iconic part of his look or something. He sued them and won years after having acknowledged and having thanked riot for the tribute. Riot had to disclose how much money the skin had made so they could decide on a percentage cut he’d get. Internet tells me it was a Dutch court though so who knows how it’d go in the US

SongOfChaos t1_jcwio7g wrote

It should not have. The idea that the image for Edgar Davids’ likeness being the inspiration for the Lucian skin helped its sales or otherwise harmed Davids is absurd. He lost no money; I sincerely doubt his popularity affected the sale of the skin. But that’s my humble opinion.

Same mentality is probably why people in this *thread are asking if she’s owed money. Inspiration, homage, and references aren’t plagiarism or copyright infringement.

Legally, no… unless this look is her trademark.

Compare Steve Jobs and his turtlenecks. If someone used that outfit for a character, there might be some money involved. But this lady probably has plenty of other outfits she wears regularly, none of which are tied to her identity.

Why?

Steve Jobs would have to have previously applied for and been granted a trademark for his particular look which is not in any way "unique".

The purpose of trademarks is to make a clear distinction between one entity and another so they can be clearly identified as such.

Millions of people wear turtleneck sweaters, not making it unique and distinguishable enough from others to be trademarked.

Now if he dressed in a colorful, striped uniform similar in design to a Vatican guard on a daily basis, that would be very unique and it would probably have been granted trademark protection, bringing a whole new meaning to the word, trade dress.

I see some people call her a villain or that the women wouldn't like being associated with the character but in the end she ends up being pretty chill (when she's not possessed) regarding Evelyn's business and everything that happens and she's also the lesbian lover in the sausage fingers universe. Really a cooler character when you think about it, she initially comes off as a stereotype bit she subverts them in the end.

Alas. I doubt anyone got a check, not her or Mike Simons or Getty. If they'd have used the photo, they'd have had to pay as it's clearly copyrighted. But they copied her outfit, which itself I doubt she thought to trademark that day. So, they were well within their rights to mimic this down to even the jewelry and hairstyle.

They're all free to ride the movie's publicity tho, using the original outfit or this photo.

IF this lady is still around, and IF that's a well known look for her, and IF this movie causes her problems because they copied her look, then she could claim they slandered her character by making her do all of these things on screen, but that'd be a flimsy lawsuit without obvious damages, and this lady is probably not um, making any claims.

There's absolutely no reason she would. Inspiring a piece of art doesn't mean you get paid for it. Everything a creator makes gets inspiration from somewhere, if they had to pay every inspiration they wouldn't have any money left. It would completely put a damper on all manner of art.

For example, you wouldn't have all the songs ever written about exes and failed relationships because that would mean having to pay your exes! Taylor Swift would be up shit's creek.

Right but if her life turned to shit because people started yelling at her in the streets because of this movie, theres reasonable expectation for the people that caused it to help out in some form.

ScribblesandPuke t1_jcyzacc wrote

That makes no sense in several different ways. First of all, that's unlikely to happen. Secondly, she can solve that problem by just not wearing that outfit. At most she could be due a payment equal to the cost of a couple sweaters.

I had medium length hair and wore round glasses for a time, and during that time someone in a pub once called me Harry Potter. Watch out JK Rowling, my lawyers will be in touch!

Liefx t1_jd22k9c wrote

> At most she could be due a payment equal to the cost of a couple sweaters.

Right, and that's reasonable expectation to help someone you caused trouble. Granted you're still asking someone to change their lifestyle because you ruined their previous one.

>I had medium length hair and wore round glasses for a time, and during that time someone in a pub once called me Harry Potter.

That's not even close to equivalent. That character existed before you dressed like that and Harry was designed to be a hero.

The point is: If you had a direct negative impact on someone's life, you should at least try to help them recover. It's how we get along. No one here is talking American-style $1 million lawsuits.

I am going to assume she was fine and most people in her world haven't even heard of the movie, the discussion was: what if.

The movie is doused in absurdist humor which is not for everyone. I personally loved it.

In case you were wondering, this is where you fucked up. This person gave you the answer to your previous question, informed you that the source is in fact well known, and gave context as to why it linked back to the OP. In response, you implied that your own ignorance of the source has any bearing on whether the movie is well known, and did so with sarcasm and snark.

You're exactly right when you say that nobody here knows anything about you. But do yourself a favor and realize that we do know how you have presented yourself in these comments, and that literally dozens of people agree that you're being insufferable. Either be grateful that you're getting detailed feedback like this at all, or ignore it and stay annoying.

Heh. I once trolled an old boss with this. He was very much into fashion. Me, not so much.

So I was looking for shoes to go with a tux when I was in Rome, and I wandered into some store near the Spanish steps. Looked at their shoes, too fancy and expensive and I left.

Day or two later I was chatting with him, and I described to him where I went. "I think it was something like Feragami or something."

"salvadore Ferragamo?! That place is super famous?"

"nah, if they were that famous, I'd have heard of it. You want famous, look at Dockers."

I knew what he meant, but it was totally worth it to hear him have a stroke when I compared dockers to high Italian fashion.

It may be high quality. It may be well known in an industry. But to me, super famous means the layperson who isn't involved in the industry is aware of it. It'sgotten so much air time, that it's percolate out of the enthusiast realm.

Its literally not the same. I'm not a politician trying to decide on some policy that affects everyone, or anything like that. In this instance, someone is saying something is so popular, everyone knows what it is. Saying I don't isnt just arguing from anecdote, its actually relevant. Because I was only asking a damn question. I never made an argument about whether this media is the most popular in the world. its the reverse, if anything. You should be saying this to the other guy, who claimed that the media was so well known, because even they knew what it was. The burden isn't exactly on ME to prove that I haven't heard of it, as is the case in this instance. I already declared that, openly. I was only asking what the media was, and they told me essentially "everyone knows about this." Which makes "I don't know about this" perfectly reasonable as a response. I'm not exactly debating this person. I'm responding to what they just said to me. Its not a statement meant to prove anything other than their bar for what "everyone has seen this" means is clearly too high, and I'm saying at the same time that I haven't/didn't know what it was. Thats it. I'm not speaking for anyone else. As well, that person saying "everyone does know about this" is just as much of a generalization as ME saying "not everyone does."

clearly, you seem to have no self awareness, yeah?

To put it straight with you, this comment makes you sound like a sarcastic condescending prick. Makes more sense now?

But a word, if someone tells you something you don't know, don't be a dick about it.

Everything everywhere all at once. Because of this long title the acronym EEAAO is pretty common.

I hear ya. Haven't heard or seen that used in place of the title myself, but I understand, now. Makes sense, though.

Interesting. Kudos to to you for a lil joke without any knowledge of the subject. Takes balls

Evidently so, nowadays lol. Even just making a comment NOT talking down to me, in response to me, is enough to warrant catching some flak, apparently. Persona non grata over here. Not sure exactly who's cheerios I shit in with my incredibly hot take on being a bit behind popular media, but apparently it was a lot of people. I do think its interesting how many different ways people tried to frame my words/portray me to make me look bad. I even said multiple times over I know I'm out of the loop. But its like people just decided nah fuck this guy, lol. Nothing I said was even disrespectful or anything until I myself started being disrespected outta nowhere. Pretty fuckin bizzare, to say the least.

For people wondering, it’s the movie “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”

Yeah I can't do movie titles changed to acronyms either, the other day I saw someone refer to star wars as ANH and I was lost.

KRD2 t1_jcv7qi7 wrote

It's actually quite common to refer to Star Wars films by acronyms because saying "Star Wars 1" could mean A New Hope (the first film) or The Phantom Menace (episode 1). It's a clarity thing to avoid having to type the full subtitle everytime you refer to the film.

CrizpyBusiness t1_jcvqp4y wrote

That's not an acronym. You said it yourself, it's the subtitle.

Edit: I can't read good

KRD2 t1_jcvqzzb wrote

W...what? It's an acronym OF the subtitle? What the fuck are you talking about?

Edit: just to be clear, I mean referring to "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" as "TPM".

TPM, AOTC, ROTS, ANH, ESB, ROTJ, TFA, TLJ, ROS

THOSE ARE ACRONYMS. Lol

People are very angry at the idea someone may not understand a given initialism/acronym for a title, in this thread. I'd be careful voicing that. Lol. I haven't seen the movie itself, mostly just have seen people talking about it very occasionally. Just didnt feature much in the circles I frequent, I guess. So the whole "EEAAO" thing was pretty much brand new for me, today. And my ADD ass brain was thinking of a million other things at the same time, didnt make the connection between Jamie Lee Curtis and the full title "Everything Everywhere All At Once."

Nobody is angry about the fact that you didn't understand what EEAAO stands for. It's the fact that you had to be a complete dick about it.

No-Wonder1139 t1_jcv6p80 wrote

Yes I see that. Evidently we just call movies by their acronyms now and we should know what they mean.

themagicbong t1_jcv8v0x wrote

Of course. Like how as a kid we all used to love watching SP on CC. Cartman calling kyle's mom a bitch, a classic.

Nah, Im joking, of course. I guess it can work for SOME titles, like LOTR for lord of the rings, WoW for world of warcraft, but its just not always universal. Or if its a newer one, maybe still include the full name for a bit.

Course, you don't HAVE to. I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, like some other guy in this thread was suggesting. Just might help people understand. Anyways gonna probably stop commenting in this thread now lmao. Wasn't trying to be rude w/ the joke, though.

No-Wonder1139 t1_jcvagat wrote

I'm thinking LOTR and T2 were the only were the only commonly acronymed movie titles. If I was like hey you ever see PTA? The chances of you guessing I meant Phil the Alien, an award winning film, would be pretty low.

You actually pronounce that as an acronym? What other noises do you make?

themagicbong t1_jcuxw2h wrote

I dunno, was the first time I've seen "EEAAO." Wasn't sure WHAT to do with it, in my head. Lol. But I can make ALL KINDS of noises. Should hear the tunes I can belt out from the shower. I'm sometimes mistaken for a Hyena in heat, but, yknow, to each their own.

Who are these people to suggest that one should just know the acronyms of movies that isnt long time fan favorites/known series of movies. Its super uncommon to refer to a movie by an acronym. Especially on a sub dedicated to photos, not movies, double especially when the photo is not even from the movie.
I mean no hate to OP its a cool photo with a nice backstory. But this was a lighthearted joke and anyone down voting should feel bad.

themagicbong t1_jcxavr9 wrote

I appreciate it, though I think people have pretty much just decided they don't like me, and sorta gave their own undertones and backstory to everything I've said so they can act like I'm the bad guy, or something. Dunno if you saw any of the characterizations made about me, but they are all over the place, and obviously pretty derogatory in nature. Pretty wild reaction over a statement like this, I think.

I genuinely was joking, and yes, the joke used sarcasm, but I wasn't being sarcastic towards OP with the joke or the followup statement. In my mind, everyone was in on the bad joke. If anything, I was even sorta joking on myself saying I didn't know what this evidently popular media was. And at the time I made the comment, there was around two comments total in the thread, and the post was at +50 votes. Pretty innocuous in my mind. Wild as fuck to log back on 12 hrs later or whatever and now multiple of my comments are in the negative hundreds lmfao.

In the nearly decade I've had this account, these comments are now among the most if not the most controversial I have ever made, apparently. This site is becoming pretty awful with the negativity these days. I guess that's just what the assumption was that was made about me, that I was being negative. But this whole thing is fuckin weird to me. Don't think I even really said anything too egregious, lol.

MrPapis t1_jczfjfu wrote

I totally agree and ive had similar experiences to feel what you are. Im just gonna say it how i feel, its that fucking woke culture. I understand the basis of it and can agree. The problem is that the arguments made are rarely true.
So their path or direction i find good(inclusion, letting people be who they are etc.) but the way they attack reality as if it can be attacked is ridicules.

And its basically whats happening here. A lighthearted joke is being vilyfied to mean "haha you stupid for saying something that doesnt make sense" When in reality its like. Yeah no, people arent just gonna know what the fuck EEAAO means. And it should only be assumed that people in cinema subs(which is eve na stretch) knows, not in a general sub as r/pics. Only reason its disliked so much is because people who dont know just wont interact with it so its only bandwagon people and people who knows the movie by its acronym.

Which is just not a normal way to talk about a movie unless you start the text with the movie name to use the acronym through the rest of it. But no screw logic/grammar because you were trying to be evil so now feel the evil of hundreds of people, as if that's fair in any way.
Honestly I'm disgusted by this behavior and none of them would say it like that to your face. Its the new keyboard warriors, all talk no walk(or even footpath to walk on), its just pure ignorant malice.

themagicbong t1_jczxeld wrote

Absolutely agree. Its pretty wild how they go full circle basically with that type of thing. Trying to act high and mighty and end up doing the exact same thing they are claiming to be against. One of those keyboard warriors even just now told me I need to "shut the fuck up," oh no! We got a tough guy over here! Yeah its pretty ridiculous overall. We can speak to each other like decent people even if we don't agree, there is literally no need for all the above and beyond crazy shit these guys were doing, and trying to psychoanalyze me and all that, give me their own backstories. Just weird as fuck, especially with that superiority angle that literally every single one of them was using in their arguments.

MrPapis t1_jczzzak wrote

The hard part for the rational people is to not let anger get the best of them so it turns into the mud fight, they want, because that's how you loose. But not getting angry when people disregard reality is really difficult. It will be an interesting shift of modern society if what we can agree collectively is true compared to the truth actually being true. At least in these echochambers it doesn't seem like rationality is winning.

themagicbong t1_jd013dk wrote

Absolutely. Unfortunately, I did end up falling into that, a bit, and it never helps or makes you look good, thats for sure. And yeah it's kinda shocking, at times, the degree to which people will willing separate from reality to push certain narratives/to win arguments. Honestly, this type of stuff is definitely worrying. Can't even have a simple convo about an initialism without there having to be a "good" and a "bad" side. And yknow, the whole thing where its okay to not agree 100%. That doesn't have to mean the person you're speaking with is a literal child, or something like that. This new hardline attitude for everything is just not the way, imo. Sure, feel strongly about whatever you want, but that does not suddenly make your cause important, nor does it make you superior to others. Picking a side shouldn't be thought of in a way that invokes superiority. Yet nowadays everyone and their moms seemingly thinks they are better than everyone else, simply because they believe in "the correct side." Anyway, I hope some of these things can be reverted, maybe with people realizing these extreme caricatures are not representative of anyone, really. But I'm not holding my breath.

Honestly if we really poke at it it seems we are hitting the limitations of human nature against the modern world. Where people used to burn witches and ridiculing people that they couldn't understand it's so sad to see the same "looked down upon" people(atleast in their mind) continue immoral and virtue signaling instead of trying to see a truth. But that's the thing, accepting our own narrow mindedness and actively expanding it when met with true adversity/differing opinion is gonna be the strength to garner. I personally see autistic people as some sort of a development as they seem to have a much more rigid and firm understanding of truth and knows better than to delve into arguments they cannot succesfully relate to ie. Understanding the actual truth instead of a limited or broken understanding. Note I do understand this is not all autism is and there is definitely severe consequences to the condition. But I hope that part of it can be forced on what is basically a broken mind with a computer brain interface. So that instead of acting out of ignorance and human limitation, we can reach beyond and speak real truths based on data and evidence. Much like many autistic people do. But will it enforce truth or will we still ignore a truth that isn't beneficial to us? How strong will our subjective mind be against the hard structured data of which the internet comprises. I choose to believe that most people are good and what we are seeing is a vocal minority faltering. And I also believe that the way to win is by giving the other cheek. I don't look down upon you for speaking against it, i have done so myself. All I can say is that the only way to truly align with people is with acceptance and understanding. And we can only start with out selves. Giving them something to fight and group against will not make them succumb to reason. But a kind heart might.

You've got a nice way of putting to words ideas that I sometimes struggle to communicate, but I definitely would have to agree that coming together is vastly superior to basically any alternative. We're at a point where you have entire nations with people living next door to one another seeing each other as enemies. It almost sounds laughable to even consider that we COULD tackle some of the crazy issues we now face, given how little unity there ever seems to be on anything.

I'm someone who had a bit of a rough go of it, early in life. I had ADD/ADHD combined (not sure what it is nowadays, but thats what I WAS diagnosed with, in the 90s.) and always struggled with school. Then struggled with addiction for a while right out of highschool. These hardships, I feel, gave me far better perspective on the human psyche. And a bit of insight into just how similar we all are to one another. I really hate the idea nowadays of just throwing the whole person away, and I definitely think positive change is possible. I'll have to try and remember to always be civil, as you mention, as it really is the only way to cut through the bullshit a lot of the time.

Your final thoughts on the matter, there, echo my own quite nicely. I think that usually if you can get far enough along with any given person, that you can find SOME kind of common ground or understanding. Most of the time. I do hope that we (the collective we, lol) can learn to put aside our differences to a much greater degree than we do today. It almost seems like we've taken a few steps back in that area, though, in the last decade or so. One thing is for sure, to me, though, and its that extreme views really don't promote much positive change, even if you personally believe your cause to be righteous.

Haha, yeah its a bit odd to say the least. Would you believe these comments are now the most downvoted I've ever made, pretty much, in all the nearly 10 years I've been on the platform? I'm not sure how/why people decided I was a douche from the start, but it sure is strange. Even had people deciding my whole life story and everything lol.
