Call for Judgment: Josh Sappin’ My Royalties

Reached a quorum of nine votes against. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 20 Apr 2009 12:56:03 UTC

In popular movies, anything simply referenced gains intense popularity. ET, for instance, famously boosted sales of Reeses Pieces greatly. The 2006 comedy ‘Night at the Museum’, which took place in the American Museum of Natural History, is credited for increasing visitors to the museum by 20% during the holiday season. This is called product placement. It also works for music. Songs and bands can be popularized by movies. It can also improve consumer awareness of the product, which is also encouragement.

Therefore, if this CfJ passes, the following action shall be taken:

Allow Gnauga to claim five royalties for his declared Subliminal Advertising.

against Not everything is subliminal advertising. With the loose definition used by Gnauga, nearly every scene uses some kind of subliminal advertising (including every scene with an actor that ever appeared in anything involving a product, every scene with theme music, etc.). Sensibly, this definition should not prevail. That is my opinion.

against There’s a difference between subliminal advertising and product placement. Product placement may be a form of advertising; but it hardly counts as subliminal.

The manner in which I do so is of my choosing, is it not? So long as it’s observable and promotes a real-world product, the only real constraint is you guys.

against If mine is no good due to links, so is your’s (since it was linked).

1) That’s no way to go about it, Waks. by your logic, if this passes, your advertising is good too.

2) Yours is no good because it’s not in the content of the scene. It’s in the name of the scripter, which is not contained in any part of the scene.

against The key term is “encourages”. Simply putting something there and hoping that someone runs with it is not an encouragement.
