The Nation of Poland is very proud of its long standing tradition of FOLK Arts ..
In fact, there's a "Association of Folk Artists" that recognizes and promotes the folk arts of Polish Peoples too ..

And one of the ways that they recognize the efforts of the FOLK ARTS inside the nation
Is the awarding of Metal Plaques (with little inscribed images of Jesus)
To those Individual Artists .. Museums .. Folk Festivals .. and even Fairs (including a Bread Fair).

These little plaques are called "People's OSKAR"
Named in HONOR of a POLISH Ethnographer (Oskar Kolberg)
whose PROLIFIC works includes more than 10,000 Polish folk songs
(Oskar passed away in 1890) .. his songs are much loved and remembered even nowadays.


AS if the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (you know .. Hollywood, its union .. and the Oscars) ..
doesn't have enough of publicity and power overall ..

Now they extend their reach into the Nation of POLAND ..
to send this little "Association of Folk Artists"

A THREATENING LEGAL LETTER
DEMANDING That the Polish Association of Folk Artists STOP Using the name 'OSCAR' in its plaques
(claiming that even the Polish version of "OSKAR" is covered by its OSCAR trademark)

(I'm sure we are a bit .. well .. confused here ..)

Needless to say .. the Polish Association of Folk Artists are bemused, confused ..
and .. some are even impressed that the Academy of Mostion Picture ARTS is so INTERESTED in their little Efforts to recognize the home-grown talent of Folk Artists within Poland.

    Screw Hollywood. Does anyone here really gave a hoot about the award but an alternate given to folk artists has potential.

    Maybe they should counter sue and have Hollywood quit using the term Oscar... hmm?

    Na, I am sure they are too nice to stoop to being anywhere near as rude and nasty as the elitist jerks in LA.

    This nation has simply filled up with to many d**ned lawyers with nothing to do but find things to sue over. Maybe that's part of the reason that America is fast becoming known as the new butt of the old jokes about Polish bureaucracy.
