Hacktivist group Anonymous not shilling for, enriching Time Warner

Guy Fawkes mask is a product, not an endorsement

By  

Wow, did this bit of trivia get a lot of attention from people more hungry for irony than accuracy.

The gist of it is that the Guy Fawkes mask many members of Anonymous wear in public – known more widely in the U.S. as mask from the movie V for Vendetta – is copyrighted in the U.S. by global media oligopolist Time Warner, which is no friend to Anonymous.

Sooo, every time one of the Anonymi buy a legal version of the creepy mustachio-and-goateed shiny clown mask from within the U.S., Time Warner gets a licensing fee.
