Yeah. There they go again. The Atlanta Braves have sued Disney because they have a problem with the name of Disney/Pixar's newest film, Brave (to be released in 2012)- this really grinds my gears. It's made me realize what kind of society we've become- over-sensitive.

BTW, the best comment of all this lunacy (and much ado about nothing):

1) Don't EVER whistle Yankee Doodle Dandy.

2) Don't ever play the song "Blue Jay Way" by the Beatles.

3) Don't look at the rays at the aquarium. Or tigers at the zoo.

4) Don't smoke Phillies cigars. Or eat cream cheese on a bagel.

5) Don't drink Royal Crown whiskey.

6) Don't pray to Angels.

7) Do try to avoid messing with the Rangers in Texas.

8) Do NOT try your hand at deep-sea fishing, lets you catch a Marlin. Don't even bother asking for it at a seafood restaurant.

9) Don't wear anything red. Especially socks. And skip white ones while you're at it.

10) If you see a Cardinal at your bird feeder, look away.

11) For goodness sake, if you make your own homebrew - STOP!

12) Disney will also be forced to change the name of one of its franchises to Bucaneers of the Caribbean. At leat until the NFL catches on.

13) Please stay away from the large mountain range running from Canada to Colorado.

14) If you visit a priest, do not speak spanish.

15) Hagrid is not a Giant - he is a Big Person.

And I just wonder what's next- sailors being arrested for no good reason?!

16) Don't watch Pirates of the Carribean.

Now we have to adjust all the numbers ahead by one since you screwed up lol

What would make this whole thing right is for Native Americans to get themselves declared class action plaintiffs and sue the Braves. :D

Of course, the Vatican might come after the Saints next, and PETA will be filing against every team with an animal name.

We got a bunch of hypocrites here. Whatever happened to saying good on a company for diligently defending their trademark?

The title of the movie is "Brave". It's not even "BraveS" If the movie were called "Atlanta Braves", then yes, I would fully supports the Braves.

A scenario popped into my head. If I decide to make a movie about Atlanta firefighters and title it "Atlanta's Bravest", would that be infringement? "(City's) bravest" is a common expression for firefighters, but in this instance you take away two letters and you have the team name. Of course, it could be argued I could change the title without it impacting the film itself.
