  • NO! NO NO NO NO NO. Good heavens you screwed this up. It wasn't COPYRIGHT that got B is for Build into trouble, it was TRADEMARK. You do not need to defend a copyright or you lose it. That's a common myth - look it up (e.g. here: www.plagiarismtoday.com/stopping-internet-plagiarism/your-copyrights-online/3-copyright-myths/). You do have to defend a trademark. Furthermore, trademarks don't expire after 90 years. Reforming copyright law will not fix this. JUST NO. Ugh...

  • I'm having a hard time believing they just seized his cars, he should have received a cease and desist order from a lawyer first for the illegal use of the name and to take down the videos. Then if he refused to comply with the cease and desist order he would then be sued, and then the courts would get involved and more then likely order the defendant to pay compensation for the illegal use of the name and the removal of the videos, and the disassembly of the car.

  • We need a have ford pinto with a mustang engine named Eleanor in their honor. If you are mocking them you can argue fair use. Mainly because you transformed the way the copyrighted item from a movie car to a car mocking a movie company.

  • I like the B is for Build guys and I think it is totally wrong that they took the car. They should have let you change the name if it is that important to them . Like one other person commented what if t your daughter or wife was named ELEANOR ?? I think you guys got the shaft because of some jerk with no vision or creativity who could never build anything .

  • So they will take my buddy's aunts 92 mustang gt that has eleanor on it because the owners name is eleanor? That seems like a way to infringe on the right of free speech because what are they going to do take her car, sue a 78 year old woman and force her to change her name because she likes to put her damn name on her cars. She also has a 2002 ford windstar with the same name on it.

    • Denice Shakarian Halicki owner of Eleanor Licensing LLC is just greedy person. She even sued Carroll Shelby, who attempted to copyright and license the customer version of the Eleanor Mustang he created for the Gone in 60 Seconds reboot and won just because she named it Eleanor in the movie, regardless that he designed it, his creativity not hers. Carroll Shelby designed and created it and the courts ruled in favor of Eleanor Licensing LLC. Our court system is so messed up here in the US. So, is Eleanor Licensing LLC going to start collecting people’s personal mustangs if they put Eleanor on the license plate? The courts would probably let them do it here in the US.

  • Companies like that are abusing the system in order to profit from little to no work. The whole copywrite thing is to prevent people from profiting off someone else's work or ideas. But companies like that, who just randomly patents things or copywrites things, do it purely because they foresee being able to sue someone in the future with that. And that's not what the system was intended for, but unfortunately there's nothing preventing it... Edit: Ok, it's an individual who owns it, but she's basically using it the same way these companies do. I guess she thinks she can just live off lawsuits because not her, but her husband, created something that became an icon...
