Air Panama whines about parody on its complicity in Bocas violence

Air Panama, flying police and equipment to Bocas to shoot protesters

So we did this story about a parody on the Air Panama "come to Bocas" commercial after the airline had been found to be involved in flying police to Changuinola - police that then would kill protesters, blind them or otherwise shoot them in the face. Even Human Rights Watch has now called for an impartial investigation. You'd expect an explanation from Air Panama, or apologies.

Instead, in typical Bananamanian retard fashion, they go after the parody.

We just clicked on it to play it again, and guess what? We get the following message:

"This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Air Panama."

Copyright claim? Hey, you, George Novey, CEO of Air Panama with 35 years of aviation experience (many of which as, shall we say, a "special pilot" close to one Manuel Noriega?) and now president of the new and better Stanford Bank - yes, you! Ever heard of "fair use"?

No? Well, Mr. Novey, why don't we let that other Stanford, the University, explain it to you?

A parody is a work that ridicules another, usually well-known work, by imitating it in a comic way. Judges understand that by its nature, parody demands some taking from the original work being parodied. Unlike other forms of fair use, a fairly extensive use of the original work is permitted in a parody in order to "conjure up" the original.

So, Novey dude, why don't you just shut up with your childish copyright claims and instead concentrate on flying on time, for normal prices and avoiding participation in human rights abuses?

Oh, and here's one of the ads (there were actually two versions). Because at the YouTubes they may be pussies, but we at Bananama Republic are certainly not.
