Completely hypothetical, but lets say someone bought his domain, and restarted The Spoony Experiment, called himself Spoony, replicated the robot buddy prop, and just continued the webseries as the new Spoony.

Could Noah stop him? Does he own a copyright on any of his old shit?
Even if he did at one point, you can guarantee hes let it slide by now.

Copyright is automatic and inherent to a creative work (e.g. his videos, written reviews, really any of the content from his website, etc.), though with branding I think it's a little more complex. He could just argue that "The Spoony Experiment" has been his brand and business (it's registered as an LLC) for over a decade and a half, has always been associated with him exclusively (nobody of comparable profile has called themselves "Spoony" or anything similar while doing similar work), and someone specifically using that name and branding to produce similar work would be profiting from his brand and work by intentionally misleading the "consumer".

But the domain is paid up for years in advance and these kinds of arguments are only made in a courtroom, which would require him to take legal action against a hypothetical person who actually did that and was willing to defend it in court. In theory though he'd probably win.

This makes me wonder if he's been putting together another vlog
Is Noah doing freelance video jobs on Upwork (formerly Elance) or something?
If more curious Kiwi's could search for his profile....
Almost sounds like he's doing bulk editing for India-level wages, I've been doing video editing for years and I never had to bind macros to keys...
We can't forget the admission that Noah is too dopey to remember which keys do what, or even write down a cheat sheet on a post-it note that he can look at.
What a brainlet.

Well he hates his whole life, so I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he's doing freelance busy work he hates for a sub-minimum wage.
It wouldn't really get in the way of his Twitter addiction either.

Something else interesting: I think around a year and a half ago, Noah cryptically tweeted about "being too punchy to read [your] own code" and then never mentioned it again. I screencapped it and nobody here commented on it, but to this day I'm still curious what he (presumably) was coding. It sure as shit wasn't his website.

Now this is interesting. Noah is asking for advice on video editing gear:

This makes me wonder if he's been putting together another vlog, because he's sure as shit not capable of anything else.

He can't even bring his own website back online, for God's sake, what the Hell are you even talking about? He most likely was just randomly reading some shit on the Web and then tweeted something to make himself look smart and busy.

Some of it would be and some of it wouldn't be. It is possible he could win on "the Spoony Experiment" and "Spoony" but as far as I know he's never actually acquired a registered trademark. Not that you always do, but it doens't prevent someone else from trademarking it. And then you have to go through an expensive court battle to try to prove it was yours first. And, even then, has he ever put the ™ after any of his work? That's supposed to be how you symbolize that you identify it as your trademark, but it isn't registered. ® is the symbol used if you have a trademark registered.

Because maintaining the website costs money while basic bitch busy work earns money.
I'm not saying I'm 100% sure, or even 50%, you're probably right that he's just lying for retweets.

I don't know why it's so hard to believe that Noah is fiddling around with shit. It doesn't mean it'll actually happen. Remember that FFXIII-2 was in the render queue for years before he unceremoniously mentioned on a stream that he had junked it, not to mention Rap Rat and a bunch of promised Counter Monkeys.

What interested me specifically is the implication that he was doing anything at all since as far as anyone knows he's long given up on even pretending that he's still trying.

Let's not forget the very basis for this thread; Spoony's disaffection and ability to pompously overblow menial things while brutally downplaying others. Most people, including me, wouldn't believe Noah if he told us the sky was blue until results are seen. So naturally, if he tweets some para-technical hyperbole, four out of five people would dismiss it as talking down to others and pretending to sound astute. Are we supposed to take his anti-Trump crusade seriously? No, we're laughing at the old man yelling at a cloud. There's more enjoyment in seeing him fail and break promises than witnessing half-arsed attempts to get them over with TGWTG style. The equasion results in more kiwi yarn to spin.

It doesn't mean it'll actually happen, yes, no argument there. Just never count on it. And in regard of unceremoniously aborting plans in some random stream; For a loudmouth reviewer he sure is a poor announcer. A simple short vid would suffice. Heaven forbid he'd be a bit more outspoken to his followers - then again, withholding information and feigning ignorance doomed his career.
