I tell ya, Bill Cosby is an entertaining man. I’ve enjoyed a lot of his stand up stuff (particularly “Chocolate Cake for Breakfast”) and even liked The Cosby Show a whole bunch.
But lately, he’s acting like a jerk. It’s not because of his comments about African-Americans, no. It’s because he’s successfully brought down a cartoon parody of himself called House of Cosbys. The originals, created by Justin Roiland, were taken down after Bill’s lawyers served him with cease-and-desist letters – and he couldn’t afford to fight a legal battle, of course. It’s a tactic used against bloggers and web folks since most of them don’t have the means to fight.
But, Andy over at waxy.org does. So he’s been hosting House of Cosbys, probably waiting for the day that Bill Cosby’s lawyers would serve him. Now they have and the good news – the great news – is that he’s going to fight. It’s time someone took a stand, not just in this case, but in an effort to protect the liberties we’re granted. Darn it!
