I am referring to the good old old days where the Associated Press was going after Tom Fulp of Newgrounds.com and Sean Bonner who created the parody of the Budweiser “WASSAP” video with pictures of Elian Whatzisname being “rescued” by Janet Reno’s Stormtroopers.
It was a different web back then. Corporate entities strongarmed and bullied people with expensive lawyers hoping webmasters would back down, even though things were well within legal limits for parody use.
