Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Dead Air Dave, Mar 1, 2016.
I just listened to Gilbert's recent podcast with Artie. It was good.
In late 2012 gilbert registered with the National Copyright Office his voice and likeness and specifically stated that he would challenge any 'imitations' of his voice. He was granted the copyright and in the copyright request specifically mentions THE HOWARD STERN SHOW as one of his pieces of evidence. This was late december of 2012. Has he been on since then?
I argue that it was one of two things - he either registered the copyright without consulting howie, and we all know how howie gets about surprise litigation.
he went against the 'release' that all the guests have to sign, which have been known to be very one-sided in THSS's favor.
He was funny and entertaining when he was on. Not a good fit for the show today.
Naw, I think this had everything to do with the AFLAC duck and nothing to do with Stern. I think Gilbert was just trying to do an end-run around AFLAC to try to make sure they couldn't imitate his distinctive voice for their commercials.
Interesting he did that. Was that before or after he found out he was banned? His last interview was early 2012
But if the patent mentions Howard something was going on there
December of 2012. Right before Sandy Hook
Interesting thing about the patent is Artie was complaining last September when him and Howard had semi-beef that Howard kept having Sour on doing an Artie impression for 45 minutes.
You won't give me a job, you won't have me on as a guest, I can't even buy ad time to plug my book but you will have this guy do me for the entire show
This is really interesting, I didn't know you could copyright ones voice. How did you find this out? I think THSS is mentioned only to document specific instances of his voice, i.e. Dice Gottfried, Rabbi Farrakhan, etc.
I saw Gilbert last night at an event in NYC. He was hysterical, as usual.
So the timing is right.
