South Park is sued for “What, What In The Butt” Parody Video.

November 16, 2010

It took more than two years for Brownmark Films to take South Park creators, Comedy Central and Viacom to court over a video parody that was done back in April 2008. Apparently the 30-something million views on YouTube and Billions of Theoretical Internet Dollars are not enough for Sam “Samwell” Norman and Brownmark Films.

From Hollywood Reporter:

……. “Courts have consistently recognized that parody enjoys broad protections under the First Amendment and the Copyright Act…….

….. old Q&A with the founders of Brownmark…….

What is Parody?

Editor’s note:
We believe that Parody is an art form and a protected from of free speech and expressions. Most of us had never heard of Samwell’s “What What (In the Butt)” video until it was parodied by South Park.
