Announced recently, Egypt plans a new copyright law requiring royalties whenever any of its ancient typical monuments are modelled, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt’s Great Authorities of Antiquities, has said the excess money would help finance restoration and upkeep costs for the country’s many ancient sites. Hawass also stated, “If regulations is passed then it will be applied in all countries of the world so that we can protect our interests. inches
This law would undoubtedly have a great affect on everything from luxury hotels to themed resorts. However, the Great Authorities of Antiquities has also antique jhumkas stated they need to rule a reproduction maintains a 100% likelihood, and since for example, the Luxor Hotel in Las vegas was not a defined reproduction of pharaoh era typical monuments, that it likely would remain movie stars free.
The Luxor Hotel came up in discussion after the Egypt newspaper, Al-Wafd published the statement, “Thirty-five million tourists visit Las vegas to see the reproduction of Luxor city while only six million look at the real Egypt city of Luxor. inches However, Hawass has supposedly stated the interior of the Luxor Hotel was entirely distinctive from that of an ancient pyramid, thus marking it as not a reproduction.
But can we be entirely certain the ancient Egyptians had not built huge, monumental gaming hotels and restaurants? Possibly the first pyramid had been built for the tomb/monument of a great pharaoh. But is it not reasonable to imagine the starts of huge pyramid themed franchises popping up along the Nile, raking in whatever products were being bartered at the time? After all, many of the principles of modern, “free market-economy” were founded in ancient Egypt, along with the animal drawn plough,
paper, and the popular way of walking as portrayed by the 80s pop group, The Bangles.
Historians and archeologists universally acknowledge the advanced of style in early Egypt societies. And like all highly sophisticated societies, surely there was the concept of an all you could can eat buffet? Why not in the right paw of the Sphinx? Who is to say there had not been a Valley of the Pancakes, open 1 day for the hectic inebriated crowd?
Little reported by archeologists are the tiny clay chips adorned with the mummies of movie stars, who had no doubt been comped for their resort rooms and dinner shows. And many of the depictions of ancient deities with heads and bodies of crocodiles, birds, and hippos surely represent some sort of early children’s attraction.
Whatever the case, in light of a new copyright law we may need to think before we use that pyramid designed sandwich cutter to sell delicious treats for our local church, or wear that funny pharaoh hat to a Halloween party we’ll likely get too inebriated to totally remember. Perhaps, thousands of years from now, in the dust and decay individuals own pyramids of resorts, malls, and casinos, future archeologists will study our society. Maybe they will see these wrecks as ancient sites of mass giving up, as tombs for countless, willing people to a barbarous religious beliefs of indulgence, hpye, addiction, and really cheap prime rib.
