    Um, what? There is no such thing as an international copyright.

    That aside, yes, you cannot copyright an idea. However, you can infringe on someone's expression of that idea. You further cannot create a derivative work of that expression without the original author's permission (in the United States). Different countries have their own wildly varying rules.

    Thanks for the information, I didn't realise there was no international copyright.

    The Pirates rip-off and the Nara stuff is truly scary! Thanks for sharing. I'd love to see an Indy rip-off just for a good laugh. They'd probably call the Allan Quatermain Adventure, Temple of the Foreboding Eyebrow!

    You must have skipped over Post #13 and several other posts after that where we were discussing Nara.

    Re: Knock of of Pirates of the Caribbean

    There have been rip-offs of Disneyland right here in the United States. But "rip-off" is highly subjective, right? I mean...much of Disneyland is a rip-off of things that came before.

    See if any of the scenes in this film look familiar to you. They are from a short-lived theme park right here in the U.S. that opened in 1960, called "Freedomland."

    I don't know about you...but I think someone had recently been to Disneyland!

    If you want to know why Freedomland resembles Disneyland, read the article on Wikipedia:

    Read the part "Woody and Walt"

    Yeah...I knew that. That's why I put my winky guy at the end of my "I think someone had recently been to Disneyland!" statement.

    I've been to Zara Dreamland and several other "rip-off" Disneylands (and even a rip-off Epcot complete with a smaller Spaceship Earth) in my travels around the world over the decades. They're always lots of fun to visit.

    I think most people would be surprised at how many whole parks are out there in the world that are direct rips of Disney. No question they would have been sued into oblivion if they existed here in the United States or in other countries where International Copyright laws are enforced.

    Even in some of the countries where copyright laws are now enforced...I think some of these parks are allowed to continue to do business because they existed before the stricter copyright enforcement laws came into effect. "Grandfathered" so-to-speak.

    Yeah but Disneyland doesn't have it's own killer Intamin AG wooden roller coaster like Aska. Wonder what will become of it now that Nara has closed.
    IMO - YMMV - FYIGM

    Re: Knock of of Pirates of the Caribbean

    Still working my way through the Nara phototour, which has very amusing captions... LOL

    You know what's creepy to me personally, I'm one of those Peak Oil doom & gloom people who look far into the future of American society and think about things like the fate of Disneyland in 100 years. And Nara comes pretty close (assuming DL is not closed completely and full of weeds).

    As a matter of fact, I was in the old Santa's Village near Santa Cruz when it WAS a closed down park full of weeds and most of the stuff was either gone, crumbling or vandalized. So I do have some sense of what being inside an abandoned amusement park is like... and it's really creepy.

    Yes, yes... depressing... welcome to my life. ;-)
