[kxybxqub] Macbeth on steroids

Game of Thrones / Song of Ice and Fire feels like a greatly expanded and updated version of Shakespeare's Macbeth.  Perhaps not too surprising since both authors used the history of Scotland as source material.

It is an interesting way to create a derivative work.  Does it inspire others?

If copyright lasted as long as Disney wants it to -- forever -- and as wide as as wide as the Marvin Gaye estate wants it to, Game of Thrones would have never been made because the threat of copyright infringement lawsuits.
