CBLDF NEWS:
U.S. GOVERNMENT SEIZES PARODY COMICS AT CUSTOMS
*******************************************************
U.S. Customs seized copies of the anthology Stripburger (on their way
to Top Shelf Productions), charging that the stories "Richie Bush" by
Peter Kuper and "Moj Stub" (translated from the Serbian as "My Pole")
by Bojan Redzic constituted "clearly piratical copies" of registered and
recorded copyrights. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has retained
counsel to challenge these seizures. We'll have more to report on this
soon. For the full story, click here:

Yeah, I bet that's exactly why "Richie Bush" was seized at customs. That's why customs has never seized a crate of MAD magazines containing film, television or comic book parodyies at the Canadian border. That would also explain why Mel Brooks was never sued into bankruptcy by George Lucas for "Space Balls" or Universal for "Young Frankenstein."
If customs gave an ounce of crap about copyright infringements, they would blow torch any package from Malaysia that was shaped like or weighed as much as a DVD.
