I can't remember why Equestria Online (I think that's what it was called) got C&D'd though.
The only time C&Ds get dropped is when large enough sums of money start either actually exchanging hands or potentially exchanging hands.
ALL big media companies do this. As I said in another post, think about all the minor exchanges of money that are made for people getting art done of their favorite Marvel, DC, Disney, Blizzard, etc characters? They don't get slapped with C&Ds because it's really just not worth the trouble. Now if someone films a say...Spider-Man short and tries to sell it as their own idea, then the C&D gets dropped because the character is not theirs to sell.
They can technically go after anyone that makes money off of something they own the rights to. They just normally don't because it's not cost effective.

-sigh- I hope tomorrow's ep is so mindblowingly awesome that I can forget about today.
This about sums up how I feel right now.
Also updated the video/song in my sig'.
It's like if a lived-in-a-bubble-his-whole-life Christian made a video about strippers after interviewing them for a few hours. That's not to say he couldn't, but his lack of familiarity with the topic, and their stance on what a stripper "actually" is will taint the whole process. It's just not going to ever have quality.
