    mmh, just saw this was allready mentioned in the other cartwright thread.

    Meh, doesn't matter, this is so harpoonworthy that it deserves it's own thread.

    Who owns the rights to that voice? would there be any point in pooning them at this time?
    Chances are they allready know as this seems to be 1 day old news

    Each time I hear the name Bart Simpson I think of this.

    Since it's on the Internet, clearly LAfags have been invited. Share OUR many wins!

    Isn't there a copyright violation going on here? As in Nancy shouldn't be using this to promote another company? Or has Fox News decided to like Scifags?

    launch 'poons!
    - compare scilon use of child cartoon character to big tobacco using joe camel
    - question her rights to use the character voice to promote and endorse a product potentially without the permission of the intellectual property owner Matt Groening.

    Now would be an excellent time to point out that Nancy is part of the CCHR, her donation going to the Scientology War Chest and the paranoid assaults on psychiatry (Like the "Global Obliteration" video and other things)

  9. Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    I really am interested to find out whether she has the right to use the voice in this manner. I seriously doubt it!

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    She most likely does not have the right to use her Bart Simpson voice in anything other than Simpsons' promos. Most studios own the copyright of the voice, and after almost 20 years being on the air, I'm pretty sure Fox has dotted the i's and crossed the t's and made sure their ass is covered in copyrights.

    Fox doesn't answer to us, unfortunately. If they do act on this, we may not hear about it unless it hits celebrity news.

    Of course, if it's publicized in other media sources, they'll have no choice but to do something.

    The always funny (and Anon fan) wwtdd.com says this: "Did they think people were on the fence about joining their cult, and hearing the voice of a cartoon 10-year-old would convince them? If so these people are too dumb to even be believed. The scientlolgy center shouldn’t be closed, it should be enclosed, and everyone inside arrested for fraud or just shot for the hell of it."

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    Fox answers only to money, as they are a corporation. Nancy Cartwright is using Bart Simpson's voice to advertise scientology auditing, so I give it a day or so for the C&D to be drafted and the punitive parts of her contract to be brought to bear.

    You don't dilute a multinational's trademarks or IP, and you definitely don't use a character from a series that has its own marketing department. Fox gets paid money for the use of Bart's likeness.

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    Well gee, I dunno about that. Interesting though to see parents say things like they've spoken to everyone in their neighborhood and Bart's now v-chipped, and next step is speaking to the rest of the local parents at the PTA. Course, if yer a $cilontololligist, this doesn't bother you in the slightest. I wonder if it'll make Matt Groenig realize just how fucked up this is? The first REALLY bad bad buzz I've seen for The Simpsons comes from a $cilon hungry for moar money.

    Here's a lovely post that might make good copypasta...

    Seems like moms in the midwest are "unhappy" heh.

    You bastards!

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    The simpson's are a multi-million dollar vehicle that includes full product lines. Fox is a corporation. A corporations first priority is making their shareholders money, BY LAW.

    There will be a cease and desist, but I'm also quite sure it's going to be very quiet. Nancy Cartwright has voiced bart for forever and changing voice actors generally pisses people off a lot (if the original voice actor is still alive.) so Fox probably won't do more than give her a wrist slap and a huge warning that if she dos it again, shit's going to get real.

    Was it necessary for her to keep doing that laugh?
    At the end it was.... I'm kinda scared of Bart nao :(

    Nigga please! You have ANY idea how much money is at stake? They won't let that dog die until they've squeezed every syndication dime from here to Proxima Centauri and the 31st Century Faux. I agree, weird thing is it's not a difficult voice to do and lots of comics / impersonators out there who would work for double scale and think they was lucky for it. None of my business, but that'd be wot? Another cool 10 million Groening could put in his pocket? Just sayin... lose a headache, pocket 10 mil. Wot's not to liek about that scenario?

    or better, use a voice changer software to just make your voice more homerish

    boy, you've got some explaining to do

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    Strange. Scientology cries when one cartoon mentions them (South Park), but has no opinion when another one does.

    The South Park episode probably got more people to read about Scientology than one robo-call from Bart's gonna do...

    Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    The show should have ended in '98 after Phil Hartman died. Life in Hell is awesome, he changed the title of his comic strip to Life is Swell. One of the many reasons I read the LA Weekly.

    I seem to remember seeing a video with that same sound clip in it about a year ago. I believe this is old news.. unless they're reusing the same promotional crap.

  36. Re: Bart Simpson voice used for Scilon promo

    What I hate here is Fox's double-standard. I remember from 99' or 00' Dan Castellaneta did a favor to an old buddy of his, Paul Krassner, by dubbing a intro track to Krassner's CD as Homer. It wasn't even "Hi! I'm Homer Simpson and I endorse this CD" it was just a very random rambling 2-minute long monologue, but when the Fox was told they [strike]came down hard[/strike] stalled and stalled and stalled and finally declined permission to Krassner which stopped production of his CD in the meantime.

    (I still have that track lurking around on one of my harddrives... I think... Hold on.)

    Er, Still looking...

    RAAAAAAGE!!!!!!

    They just killed one of my favorite shows. I used to be able to look past Nancy being a Scilon for the sake of enjoying the show, but this is the last straw.

    Fuck you, Cult. Just... fuck you.
