posted on 2003-05-08 10:50 EDT
The United States Patent and Trademark Office has recognized and confirmed BAAF's trademark of the term "World Anime Party" in conjunction with any anime or manga-related fan convention or film festival. This makes BAAF the only convention authorized (under US law and international treaties) to use that phrase.
Isao Takahata's troubled first feature is easily the best anime of the 1960s.
