As someone pointed out in the techdirt article's comments, what's to stop the video's creator sending it to a friend in America, who then posts it. Would it then be protected under US parody laws?

But bloody hell, are the authorities in this country really that terrified of ridicule? I'm surprsied Mock the Week and HIGNFY are still broadcasting, knowing that.

What makes this one particularly vulnerable to being censored is that the mascots are registered trade marks as well, which allows for rather more aggressive legal action.
