Dammit Hasbro, Quit Fucking things up for the rest of us!
as some of you most likely know by now, Jan Animations, creators of the heavily popular Ask the Cutie Mark Crusaders Ask Blog on tumblr, as well as the super popular Button Mash's Adventures that only made it past the first episode, and the super cute and catchy Don't Mine at Night music video. Jan Animations have been cock slapped by Hasbro's Cease and Desist order on terms of trademark infringement.
This shit is getting old Hasbro. first off, I know Jan Animations is completely fine, Button Mash under copyright law, is protected under Parody works. the copyright laws are seriously left in the stone age. and they HAVE to be updated to accommodate the internet media. I recommend from now on, Download everything! this way you can have the work for yourself and watch it anytime you like.
While Hasbro was cool with the Brony Community for a while. now they seem to see us as a threat. we've grown too big for our britches, we're creating our own stuff. video games, movies, and music. and when it gets recognized Hasbro feels threatened, and feel they need to step in and stop it. and that is their mistake. they could support these works. help it grow. maybe even profit from it. and these animators, story writers, and music artists can grow and be hired by big time movie and game companies. this doesn't just hurt the fans people. this hurts Potential for great artists to bloom and grow. and as a fellow artist it saddens me. Hopefully Jan Animations as well as Mane 6 and many others who unfortunately also got cock slapped with a C&D order will go on to grow their talents and become successful in their respective fields.
well. Atleast we still have our sexy Milf Button Mash's mom.herdmind.net/Images/headshots/…
We're loosing our freedom as a fandom people. the C&D Orders are our leash and Hasbro is tightening it with each issue. how long until the fandom can't breath and grow? what's sad is that the community is gaining younger people, lets not have it to the point they joined late in the game. this can't be a fad people. this community can do great things. HAS done great things. we can't be just a fandom.
Jan Animations fillies and gentlecolts. next is the whole fucking community. I miss Lauren Faust, I really do.
