It's a Sign: New Zealand Edition

New, 1 comment

Plans for Wellington, New Zealand's big hillside "Wellywood" sign are back on track, according to the Wellington International Airport, the rather wacky institution behind the stunt. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which has the trademark on the Hollywood Sign, put out its own statement in response: "We are not without a sense of humor, nor without legal rights. We hope that if the Wellington airport wants to mimic our Sign in this fashion, it will proceed in cooperation with us and will recognize that the holder of the rights to the Sign and the party responsible for its continued existence is a nonprofit entity that works hard to raise funds so that the Sign even exists to be mimicked."
