Neville Pierce, age 61, a Cook County Democtrsatic Party official, filed a lawsuit in Chicago Federal court today naming the ‘Religion of Islam’ as a defendent in a copyright lawsuit. In the tort, the man claims he copyrighted the phrase ‘Death to America’ in 1979 shortly after the Iranian hostage takeover of the US embassy in Tehran and has the sole legal right to own the now infamous chant.
Citing previous intellectual property laws that date back to the writer’s of the Constitution original intent, Pierce quotes the first laws of the fledging United States concerning intellectual property as proof to his right to claim ownership.
In various middle eastern capitols angry crowds held crossed out protest signs with hastily written ‘Death to You-Know-Who’ scrawled over previously written slogans. Several protestors were at a loss of words as to how to turn their frustrations into easily understood chants that made sense.
One protestor said the lawsuit was unfair and had to be the work of the nefarious Jews. Another said that was the only English he knew and his right to protest was being diminished by the lawsuit.
With all current treaties and trade agreements protecting copyrighted items, some governments were looking at millions of dollars in royalties owed to Pierce who has set up a trust in order to collect long overdue royalties. It’s estimated that the royalties could top $500 million just in Iran alone.
White House officials sensing an opportunity to align themselves with more dissatisfied muslim dissidents promised a team of Harvard lawyers and election slogan writers to help ease the protestor’s communication crunch along with some free advice, some clever wordsmithing, and a whole bunch of new weatherproof placards.
