I was making a meme the other day (don't ask, LoL) and it got me thinking.
Not going to mention any sites, you all know them anyway. If you look at the most popular Meme Generators out there, they all have hundreds of meme backgrounds most of which involve famous people.
Let's take "One Simply Does Not" meme for example. The one from the Lord of the Rings. I can't imagine New Line Cinema having released this into Public Domain.
So, are they all blatantly infringing on copyrights or is there a loophole I'm not aware of? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
