If you haven’t seen this, someone has opened a “parody” of a Starbucks in Los Feliz. The FAQ posted at the store claims that it is “fair use” and protected by “parody law” (whatever that is.) While this may turn out to be simply a “dumb” marketing strategy or clever piece of performance art we can’t help but notice quite a few Copyleft buzzwords. Also the specific Weird Al song mentioned should raise some eyebrows among copyright lawyers. So regardless, intended or not we are certain this will be Tech/Copyleftblog fodder for the next two weeks.
So might as well have a little fun and guess who will be the first tech/copyleft blog to cover this “spontaneous” event.
