Movie Titled "Grand Theft Auto"

5 replies 132 views Edited Feb 25, 2013

I don't know if any of you guys and gals know this, but there is a movie called "Grand Theft Auto"...it was released back in 1979 (which is 5 years younger than me lol). Ifound out about it completely by chance when I was doing a google search regarding the GTA games ( I merely typed grand theft auto in the search bar). Also, in regards to the original GTA SA - everything in the GTA series is fictitious, being that everything from buildings to vehicles, to locations...they all have fake names that are based on real stuff - that is, everything EXCEPT the game's title "Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas...I'm assuming that R* uses the phony names due to copyrights...but why did they name the game using a real name (there are at least a couple places in or near California that bear the name San Andreas!) Those of you who live in Cali will know the places I refer to lol. However, I believe the fact that the movie and the video game share the same name may be strictly coincidental. Now I don't know if it's possible to copyright the name of a city since there are several states that have a city/town that share the same name, but Cali is the only state I know of that has a city named San Andreas. So, what I would do, if the name San Andreas is indeed copyrighted and R* used that name without getting permission, then R* would be commiting copyright infringement, and if I was the mayor of that city I would definitely bring legal action against R* seeking royalties from the sales of that video game. At least it would bring a bit of revenue to my city lol. Just something to make you say hmmm. Of course, this is strictly a matter of my own observations/opinions.

Just send me a fr via your PS3's XMB...I'm usually playing TBOGT (Free Mode) in the late evening to late night hours (after midnight), since I'm a bit of a night owl lol.
