Ezra Levant, the human bug strip of Mohammedan loonietoons:
I think another lawsuit is coming my way.
Today, my lawyer received this letter from a radical Muslim activist in Toronto. It’s a Certificate of Registration of Copyright. He claims to have copyrighted the image of Mohammed, PBUH (which stands for “peace be upon him”). In other words, it’s now Mohammed, PBUH, TM.
I checked it out on Industry Canada’s copyright database and, sure enough, there it is: two weeks ago, Akhtar “Hector” Agha has indeed registered a “Restriction on Depiction of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)”. It’s right there on the government website.
(But note the thinly-veiled allusion to violence in Hector’s letter: “…it is very fortunate for Canada not to have suffered property loss or injury/causality here or abroad”. I think he meant casualty, but frankly his poor command of English adds a degree of menace, don’t you think? And then he demands certain videos be taken off YouTube, saying “I hope videos like this will not catch much attention for illegal activity which could harm Canada by terrorism, criminal extremism or suspicious activities”. Nice country you have there — shame if anything would happen to it.)
Hector is trying to seize the property rights to the image of Mohammed, so that no infidels like me can publish them.
Of course, Hector will fail. His claim to a copyright — that’s all it is, a claim, until a court upholds it — is laughable. But, just a few years ago, the idea of Maclean’s being dragged through a five-day trial because it discussed Islam would have been laughable, too.
Ha ha! Jokes on Hector — WE DON’T HAVE CHARTER PROTECTED PROPERTIES RIGHTS IN CANADA, DUDE!
