An Eye for an Eye

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. --------> An eye for an eye makes the whole world cyclopes.
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world pirates."
I like it! :D

An eye for an eye makes the whole world patch-wearing pirates?

Krr - most of them aren't in the business of making money from their art like hitRECord is. Copyright law is the law. I'm not a gambler myself, so it's my philosophy that it is better to exercise due regard in these matters rather than to leave things up to chance.
This has nothing to do with my appreciation for this RECord - I hearted it right away - I think it's great. It's simply a matter of the law, which is why I made a statement about this issue in Marke's collab. This doesn't have anything to do with opinion either.

I feel like a LOT of these changes in popular phrases are likely to already exist in some way or form because we all come from similar cultural backgrounds, so our ideas are going to overlap. It's not unheard of for multiple people to have the same idea without having stolen it from anywhere. Wouldn't the real question be whether or not this phrase is copyrighted already? It doesn't appear that this person has any ownership of the phase besides uploading it to Threadless for use on tshirts (and has not actually been used).
If the HitRECord powers that be think it's too risky then I would understand, but I'm just wondering where something like this falls?

I don't see the big deal. I highly doubt any of those slogans are protected under any type of copyright. I'm willing to bet 100 other people have posted the same thing online.

I guess that would depend on whether the original author discovered your work after it got published and decided to take hitRECord to court over the matter. I think this phrase that I KNOW you came up with yourself deserves to be pubilshed - you wouldn't intentionally copy somneone else's work - 99.9% of hitRECorders wouldn't intentionally do that - it's inadvertent. In the end, in a court of law, does your intent really matter? Of course it does. But the outcome of such a case is up to the judge and or jury, isn't it. It sucks! I might have even done the same thing - I looked and didn't see any that looked like mine, but someone else may discover something - at which point all I'll be able to do is agree with their findings and delete my RECord - andf move on and hope my next original thought is actually original.
Again - I KNOW in my heart you came up with this in your own mind. It doesn't change the fact that someone else came up with it in their own mind first.

:( Does it count that I came up with it on my own?

I really - out loud - laughed when I read this. So I am very sad to report to you that I found it here when I searched for the quotation on google - so it's not original:
