Can This Pickle Survive Chad Kroeger?

What does it take to get me to post something new?

Nickelback threatening to take down the Facebook fan page Can this pickle get more fans than Nickleback?

While internet copyright law is vague (it always take the law a little while to catch up to technology), I'm pretty sure the band cannot get the page taken down by threat of legal action. Now they might (with all their corporate dollars) be able to get Facebook to take it down. I think someone from Slate or some other slightly edgy internet news/opinion publication needs to do a story on this. Or maybe some blogger already has and I'm not savvy enough to know about it.

I think Nickelback's attempt to get the page taken down will only solidify their reputation for making bad music for pricks.

Agreed. I think it's possible Facebook would take it down because it's "offensive" without getting sued... possibly. I know that they've stopped people from posting things that involved voting for them in online contests, etc., just because some people said it was offensive or unfair.

Nickelback should really just get over it. The only reason anyone really says their band's name anymore is to talk about how much they suck. They should be glad that hatred has given them more longevity than their horrible music has.
