    We took down the Yoda book thread out of copyright concerns. Posting a whole book, even a shirty book, might cause the publisher or the old greedy fuck whose wife watched someone else write it, to pursue legal action. Selected pages, photoshops etc, should be fine just not the entire book.

    Good idea, especially as the author's husband has been known to file a lawsuit or two over the years.

    Sorry for any concerns. I always imagined this would be the only copyright issue concerning that book:

    Not a problem, it's always better to be safe than sorry with this shit. We've had attorney's contact us for less.

    I wondered about that too, regarding Yoda, did they have to get clearance from Lucasfilms?

    I think the loophole is that despite having the same name, they don't use the actual likeness of the character. If they did, or somehow brought "star wars" into the plot, they'd be buried in cease and desist letters from Lucasfilm.

    It read like it was translated from another language. You would have enjoyed hating it.

    You would also have enjoyed the artist's rendering of Beef's size 12 flats. (Can't remember who posted that.) But it would be worth flipping through the actual book just for that.

    i really think we'll never hear it. there's something fishy if benjamen didn't get it.

    maybe RObin wanted too much $, or something on the back end.
