Humvee Makers Sue Activision Over Vehicles In Call Of Duty
 

Game Informer has the story.

Quote:

AM General, the manufacturer of the well known Humvee military vehicles, has filed lawsuit against Activision for extensive use of Humvees in Call of Duty over the years.

The lawsuit alleges that Activision have taken advantage of AM General's "goodwill and reputation" by incorporating Humvee branding into the games and related toys and content. AM also alleges that the vehicles are a key selling point to the series. Activision have stated that they do not comment on pending litigation.

Humvee and HMMWV are short for High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, used by the military for its highly resistant construction. AM General says they have produced nearly 278,000 Humvees as manufacturer.What The company also said it wants compensatory, punitive and triple damages from Activision after the months of talks have failed.

We spoke with IP litigator Nathan Sabri of Morrison & Foerster about the case's viability.

"You're usually fine to use a real toy or name if it's part of a plot of your movie," Sabri said. "What I think [AM General is] getting at is, if the Humvees are background use, then AM General doesn't have a case and I think they know that. What AM General needs to prove is that Call of Duty is being misleading about the source and makes people think it's sponsored or licensed."

Are we living on the same planet? War is occurring on a global scale.

UNHCR: More displaced people due to war now than at the end of World War 2.

Yes, that's right...the worldwide refugee crisis is worse NOW than it was at the end of the bloodiest war in all of human history.

When a Chinese company starts screaming "Intellectual Property Infringement", then just reply that you are considering teaming up with a Taiwanese firm to market a product based on that IP. The counter offers are amusing since Taiwan honors no mainland China IP at all.

It's more like low intensity conflicts, garnished with economic refugees.

Easy fix Activison, just replace the Humvees with these.

The Army and marines did.

This is BS. AM General does not own the HMVVB brand. That is owned by the U.S. Federal Government. Only if they use the HUMVEE name as marketable material do they have a case. As a vendor which produces goods for Federal Government. The Feds owns the rights to ALL names and hardware which is purchase for the Armed Forces....

This is a B.S. Case.

This is absolutely intentional. Almost none of these refugees are fleeing war. A few skirmishes with local militias is called a war now...This immigration is for a reasons other than helping people. We just have to get to the bottom of why. If only these immigrants were good smart humble people instead of fucking violent low IQ rape animals...Then the left would be rioting to get them out.

You bet your ass it's intentional.

The central banks don't care what color you are, just that you have a birth certificate.

See, that's what this is all about, MONEY.

Educated people have less children, it's as simple as that. And with most of Europe fairly well-educated, their birth rates are decreasing. In a world where leftists are extremely concerned, right or wrong, with climate change, you'd think this was a good thing.

But Leftists think with their hearts a little too much sometimes, and only see this issue at face value. They pay attention to the migrants skin color very closely and because of the inner guilt they house from years of state-sponsored educational guilt-training and ACTUAL racist laws which assist minorities, they tend to come down on the side of the migrants.

But the central banks only care about birth rates. Central banking, you see, is not exactly the most popular thing across the world. It should be no secret that the places we've seen global, concentrated efforts to destabilize are NOT running central banks (Syria, Russia, SA, middle east in general).

This military and political destabilization creates two effects the global bankers love most:

1) A mass migration - At first the migration starts because of the war, but soon it becomes a river because hey, wouldnt you leave too if you saw everyone packing up?

2) An opportunity to install a central bank - With the previous, stable political environment in place, it was nearly impossible to convince the local governments (whether made up of democratically-elected people or not {kings, etc}) to sign away the future of a nation and it's people into perpetual debt. With a destabilized country, it is relatively easy to put "peacekeepers" on the ground and ensure "democratic voting", all the while those behind the scenes install a central bank.


Why?

Central banking revolves around one idea, that debt is okay. In fact, not only is it okay, but the whole damn thing is run on debt. When the US Federal Reserve (a private banking institution not in the least bit Federal in nature) prints or creates a dollar bill, it must be BOUGHT by the US banks. Where do you think big banks get their loans from? It ain't you.

With the large private banks borrowing the money, they are forced to repay the dollar that they "bought" from the central bank with interest. Wait, why should they have to repay interest? Wasn't the dollar created or printed out of thin air? yeah, fuck you and take

So we take it, and we are therefore imprisoned with perpetual debt, as the only way our money supply grows is if we make more, under penalty of interest. This is known as the Federal Reserve Rate, and when it rises or falls it has a direct impact on our economy. Why? Because humans are emotional and reactive investors, mostly.

These economic impacts, due to the raising or lower of the Fed Rate and subsequent market reactions, are the PRIMARY reason we such an up and down economy. We are directly tied to the central banks. Their life is our life.

Now for the bad news...


There's no way out. Not without crushing the economy. Well, that's going to happen very soon anyways, and not a little bump. I HUGE crash of epic proportions is coming and there's nothing we can do about it.

Why is a crash coming and why is it inevitable?

We're screwed for many reasons. But the beast which has yet to have had it's reckoning, which is the failure of central banking to maintain a stable economy, is coming. And central banking will be exposed for what it is, a lie.


Take a look at this chart. It shows the correlation of the central bank's interest rate to our economy. Of course I want you to see the absolute connection between the two. But that's not the point of the chart, as you'll see. Now, here's the chart.

https://i.imgur.com/jOmYuJx.png

Okay, so I'm sure you can see the connection between the two, as they match up nearly identical. But what I want you to notice is the actual central bank's interest rate, the red line.

It's bottomed out! And it's so historically off of it's trend, even for the shitty trend that it is, that's there's no way for it to go but up.

But remember what happens when the rate is increased? No? Just look at the other part of the chart as a reminder.

Here's the crux.

Rates cannot stay this low forever without a massive increase in population. When a person is born or transfers, a birth certificate is created which certifies the person's birth and allows the government to "count" that person for reasons of financial projections towards repaying the interest on the central bank loans. When you have a higher number of people being born, that shows on paper that the government can pay back even more taxes than the present because they will be taxing the increased population as well, to include migrants. Sure, illegal migrants consume way more national resources than they put in, but those who are in charge of paying back the banks don't care about that. It's about the numbers.

So, all the white educated, countries are being flooded. Never mind that this will effectively create a genocide among the whites in Europe, they don't care about skin color on a spreadsheet.

Gut go ahead leftists! Go ahead and think you are helping by suggesting that these migrants be allowed in, BECAUSE MAYBE THEY SHOULD BE.

For without them being let in, our central bank comptrollers will HAVE to raise the Federal Reserve Rate in order to ensure that their own books are met to balance in the future. And you do NOT want to see that rate go up even 10%, which historically-speaking wouldn't even get us back to a normal level, because it would be nationally catastrophic. I'm talking over 30% of our economy, gone. murders, rapes, crime would skyrocket

We'd be a 3rd world country.

There's no way out. We have to keep borrowing at these near zero rates or we're all going to die or at least have a really shitty life for our kids.

This is the imprisonment known as the central banking system. You are a slave to the debt.

Could we devise a better system? FUCK YEAH. If we traded on goods with actual value (instead of fractional reserve banking system) we'd be much better off, just like ALL of history before the central banks came around (first one in 1688, Sweden). We'd be just fine with anything else, really. Because market forces ALWAYS balance out.

But we can't get out of it. Not without dooming ourselves. At least, no one has come forth with a plan that's convincing enough or has convinced the right people.

Janet Yellen has mentioned negative interest rates, lol. This is a game of attrition at this point. Maybe outlaw usury. Fuck this free market bullshit honestly fam. I'm over it.


I just wish the economy would hurry and tank so we can get this show on the road. If western countries are broke we wont have the money to feed the borderline retarded ungrateful buying food at wal mart with EBT and selling it at their fucking shanty grocery store in the ghetto opportunistic rapist who hate us. There will be no money but at least we can mend our society

Also, lol @ Humvee waiting 15 years to file a suite.

What about the reports out of Germany that have 90% of the immigrants not working? I bought a bunch of video games from a arab dude who lived in Germany, he said they paid him not to work....huehue. I was like yeah, Germany has several global car brands that pays for that shit. That doesn't really work in the real world

I guess Germany has so much money they can afford to take a loss while the 3rd worlders are doled out to the rest of the west. Crazy stuff.
