One really good idea for finding your way around media company lawyers is to be a big honcho…
like President, say… or Vice Chairman, maybe… of a media company yourself.
Then you can pretty much plagiarise media from that company with impunity… like, you know, comic strips in their stable.
And if you parody some other company, and, say, Sega Genesis thinks what you did is not fair use, you have a whole legal team at your disposal.
I’d still stay away from Disney, though….
that Mouse bites much harder than a Hedgehog.
