Announced recently, Egypt plans a new copyright law requiring royalties whenever any of its ancient ancient monuments are produced, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Zahi Hawass, head of Egypt’s Better Local authority or council of Antiquities, has said the additional money would help finance restoration and upkeep costs for the place’s many ancient sites. Hawass also stated, “If legal issues is passed then it will be applied in all countries of the world so that we can protect our interests. inch
This law would undoubtedly have a great influence on everything from luxury hotels to themed resorts. However, the Better Local authority or council of Antiquities in addition has stated the doctor has to rule a reproduction maintains a 100% likelihood, and since for antique jhumkas example, the Luxor Hotel in Nevada was not a precise duplication of pharaoh era ancient monuments, that it likely would remain the top fashion gurus free.
The Luxor Hotel came up in discussion after the Silk newspaper, Al-Wafd published the statement, “Thirty-five million tourists visit Nevada to see the reproduction of Luxor city while only six million go to the real Silk city of Luxor. inch However, Hawass has apparently stated the interior of the Luxor Hotel was entirely not the same as 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, breathtaking playing hotels and restaurants? Maybe the first pyramid had been built for the tomb/monument of a great pharaoh. But is it uncommon to imagine the inception of huge pyramid themed franchises growing 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 described by the 80s pop group, The Bangles.
Historians and archeologists generally acknowledge the active of complexity in early Silk organizations. And like all highly sophisticated organizations, surely there was the concept of an whatever you can eat buffet? Why not in the right paw of the Sphinx? Who is to say there was not a Pit of the Pancakes, open a day for the busy intoxicated crowd?
Little reported by archeologists are the tiny clay courts chips adorned with the mummies of the top fashion gurus, who had no doubt been comped for their standart hotel 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 might have to think hard before we use that pyramid formed candy bar cutter machine to sell delicious treats for our local church, or wear that funny pharaoh hat to a Halloween party we’ll likely get too intoxicated to completely remember. Perhaps, thousands of years from now, in the dust and decay in our own pyramids of resorts, malls, and casinos, future archeologists will study our society. Maybe they will see these damages as ancient sites of mass compromise, as tombs for countless, willing subjects to a barbarous faith of indulgence, avarice, addiction, and really cheap prime rib.
