Analagous Reasoning Fail

The idea behind it is funny, but it isn’t accurate.

Here’s why…

(1) Fish and are generally not copyrighted. So it isn’t a crime to copy it.

(2) Assuming that fish were copyrighted, God would be the patent holder. Since Jesus is God (don’t ask me about theology of the Trinity), it isn’t a copyright infringement. A copyright holder is entitled to make copies of the patented items.

As for the bread, it is arguable that the bread may be copyrighted if the baker decided to patent a special method that he used or a new flavour that he came up with. However, if the bread is baked in a manner that is available in the public domain, then Jesus did not violate any copyright laws.

But the idea behind the picture is funny though.
