Star Trek Photo - Ripoff?

Is there a potential copyright infringement suit here?

Ha! I at first thought someone photoshopped a picture of Prince in this, until I actually looked at the face. I highly doubt it's copyright infrigment. Can you copyright a stance?

No but there is a ridiculous post on the Org about Star Trek & Prince.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

No, nor can you copyright a movie poster, or even a font or color scheme. What does the OP think this is an infringement on, exactly? There is not one Prince album that this looks like, not one photo from a liner note. It's a retarded notion. Hell, even the Mistral font on Purple Rain was used on albums since the 70s. I got a whole Pinterest page of "Things that Use The Purple Rain font". haha

Oh how I laughted!!!!

These things are an interesting 'smoke screen' for the Estate while people sell copies of their CDs on eBay.

Maybe we should all do this as the Estate doesn't mind at all. But just don't upload a 10 second live clip to YouTube as they will get upset!


lol lol lol

OK I'm going to ignore the source of this and actually agree with you. On another note, what copyright does the OP thing exists? So far, they've cowerded out and not said a word.

I don't know what this Star Trek pic is supposed to look like. But if people can get sued for copying a picture, then the Fab 4 could have made a lot of money from all the folks doing these. lol

For 75 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras
