As it was explained to me - the ambiguousness of the statute (at least here pin the US) - is that you can be easily sued if the image (or whatever) has an impact on the storyline/plot.

If the protagonist has a picture of "ZYX" hanging on the wall it's not an issue. If the protagonist is somehow influenced by or wants to be like "ZYX" than it's story/plot point.

The ambiguousness of the statute is argued in the courts and decided upon by juries.

The lawyers could argue that the protagonist having a picture of "ZYX" on the wall is an indication of the influence of "ZYX" on the protagonist and that the protagonist is obviously influenced by "ZYX" since the picture is on the wall - even if "ZYX" is never mentioned or even hinted at in the plot/storyline.

Apology accepted? Maybe I'll just stay away for a little while longer. I provided the same info as everyone else, but got hated on for it. Joseph is tired of getting hated on.

its not the content of your thoughts, its the delivery. you often come across as a condescending know it all and no one likes that. there are a lot of hyper masculine ego maniac straight while males that populate hollywood. not saying you fall into that category, i dont know you personally, but your posts often reek of that type of attitude.

Alcove Audio... I think your response is probably the best advice and it's the determination I've come to as well. If its unsubstantial to your story, its usually considered deminis. If it's references and involved then it needs to be cleared in advance. Its the difference between having a pepsi can sitting on a table in a scene and having your character take a journey to find a can of pepsi.

Which is why I do my best to read other people's words online literally. Just take it at face value. No, you don't know me in real life, and if you did, you'd know that I'm the exact opposite of "hyper masculine". I'm queer, for the record, and I'm making a queer feature film that is going to espouse the virtues of modern feminism. For you to mistake my very good advice as hyper masculinity is a mistake on your part. There's nothing in my words that should've made you think that. I choose my words carefully. I make my posts reek of what I want them to, and in this thread, I gave good advice, with nothing but sincerity.

Does anyone know about the laws on this in the UK? I understand our copyright laws are far stricter than those in the US.
