Here in Aust we have a Kangaroo an an Emu on our coat of arms. This is because they not only symbolise Australia but because both can not walk backwards (Advance Australia Fair and all that).
It has been in the news for the last few days, I thought it was a joke at first.
Our Indegenous People are suing us over copyright as we can not produce 'in writting from an Aborigine' a transfer of copyright. All companies using native animals, ie Qantas, are to be targeted.
This is similar to American Indians suing over the use of the Bald Eagle as an American icon.
Best bit, law suit is funded by legal aid, so the we the people are in effect paying to sue ourselves!
What do you think?
