Fuck You VanOC

With glowing hearts...

The petty little dickheads running Vancouver's olympic organizing committee have done it again. They've adopted a phrase from Canada's national anthem... and copyrighted it!


Now, as far as I ever knew, you couldn't copyright ordinary words and phrases. But I haven't been particularly vigilant and it may be that Canada has gone down the same crazy road they have in the United States of Insanity in allowing you to copyright almost anything -- basmati rice, for instance (though that copyright was revoked when rice growers in India, among others, protested loud and long). Perhaps it was my threat to copyright long-chain hydrocarbons that gave them pause.

VanOC also copyrighted words such as Gold, Silver, Bronze, Winter, Olympics and so on, then tried to hammer businesses that used those terms in their names -- most notably Olympic Pizza, which has held the name for a great many more years than Premier Campbell has been sober. They failed, thank goodness.

Although I, for some odd reason, enjoy long track speed skating, I don't really like the Winter Olympics. They seem elitist to me.

Conflict of Interest Disclosure: If you want, you can dismiss this rant as sour grapes. I live in the False Creek area, near the Cambie St. Bridge, where they've been disrupting our lives for 2+ years building the Olympic Village (you can buy one of condos if you have a elite million bucks or so) and the subway to the airport (which was going to be almost all drilled underground until the contractors found more profit in a messy, disruptive cut and cover scheme).
