You mean US standards for intellectual property... which are really Disney standards for intellectual property.
I'm not a US citizen and think that "US standards for intellectual property" are absolutely disgusting. A US company with no connection whatsoever to my country or its indigenous people has trademarked our word for hello/greetings/life/health.
Life plus 70yrs for copyright? WTF?
How about this for "sane standards of intellectual property": https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19997848
What's the word? Curious.
Sounds like a repeat offender to me.
> The trademark does not mean that the company owns the phrase, or that it can ban anyone from using it. Disney filed the trademark upon the release of the original movie for clothing or footwear it sells in the United States, as a way to protect itself against other companies that might try to exploit the Disney brand.
These "trademark experts" have contradicted themselves there. The trademark prevents an African man from the race and culture that created the phrase, from selling clothing and footwear bearing that phrase. And I SMH at the claim that Hakuna Matata is a "Disney brand".
