They mentioned Avarar but didn't even bring up that it's a complete copy of Pocahontas.

As for Kill Bill, I think it was pretty openly a hommage to old Samurai movies.

i thought that thing about rapper's delight was pretty awesome (i never knew that same beat popped up in so many songs).

I don't think it really says much about hollywood's stance toward IP though. I mean, there is a pretty clear difference between borrowing visual or story elements from previous works and selling pirated dvds.

PS* Nero, word. It is maybe even more similar to Fern Gully (sp). But there are plenty of movies that follow a similar plot line. Personally, I see James Cameron's pitch meeting going like this..."It's like Dances with Wolves...BUT IN SPACE!!!!"

I personally refer to the movie as "Dances with Blue People".

Ron Paul is for self-government when compared to the Constitution. He's an anarcho-capitalist. Proof.

Nielso this is an excellent video. However isn't it interesting how he had to add the war in Iraq when everythign else was a private sector target?

It's the new religion.

There is a depression because of over-production? What on earth?

I wonder what the computational capacity of the human brain is and how it's calculated.

David Kramer, Tom Woods, and Peter Klein just recently went back and forth on this issue on the LRC blog here and here in case you missed it.
