Roman numerals in film copyright
« on: June 12, 2017, 11:26:06 pm »
Why are they still doing that? It's silly. Cut it out!

Also, pretty much ANYTHING copyrighted last century with a roman numeral is wrong. It's not MCM for 1900, it's MDCCCC. So there :p

Hmmm, I could have sworn that was how we wrote 1900 in high school, but the innerwebz says 'no', and the innerwebz could never be wrong so I'll retract that last bitů

Ah, can't find anything WRITTEN, because everyone has copied everyone else, but an image search tells another story :)

"I really do feel pity for those who go out of their way to perform a personal slight, than taking the effort in joining the conversation and creating some useful dialogue which would benefit the persons' perusal of this topic.  Yet where would we be without the persistant antagonist?"

I was always taught you didn't put more than 3 of the same digit in a row.

 :dunno

Plaques are always full of mistakes.  Your pics prove nothing.

Yeah.  While I agree with the premise, I think if you have time to complain about that then you don't have nearly enough problems in your life.  I'll gladly give you some of mine.  :)

I would agree with this
It's IV, not IIII for 4
Just like it is quarter to 8, not 7:45...   >:D

Maybe. But that last one is from Trinity College, which I think is in Oxford. If even THEY can't get it right, what hope have I got :D
