Imagine being an Intellectual Property lawyer on holiday. Especially if you like fairgrounds. You'd never be able to switch off. Everywhere you turned would be somebody else (probably, presumably) infringing the copyright of someone you represent.
It must be especially tough if you work for Disney.
It's a shame, the way a generation of fairground owners have just festooned their rides with knocked-off cartoon imagery. It can be visually striking and the badness of the knock-offs is sometimes funny.
But there's something really original and thrilling about some of the original fairground graphics. This sort of stuff. But I suspect we won't see much of this preserved in real world commercial fairgrounds. It's not exciting enough for the kids. It doesn't work when the rides are all called things like Neutron and Terminator.
You get the sense though that change might be in the air, and that a number of artists who learned their trade doing graffiti are finding their way into fairground art, creating a new graphic language for a new generation of rides. That'll be an exciting combination.
