HBO slaps takedown demand on 13-year-old girl's painting because it used 'Winter is coming'


Winter is Coming.

This is hilarious. The term Winter is Coming is used in literally thousands of pages of books. For example in the book "Keeping Bees & Making Honey" the term "Winter is Coming" is on Page 10. Would HBO now demand that this book be banned?

Several apparel manufacturers use the term "Winter is Coming" in their advertisements. They have been doing it for years. Should they take it down?

Which clown gave HBO the right to claim commonly used phrases as their's?
