Cake decorating is an art. It takes HOURS for people to decorate a cake. I mean, I can't be the only person to sit down for one How To Cake It video only to look up and realise it has been 5 hours, right? Well, that's not what today's episode is about. It is actually about Miley Cyrus and that time she stole a cake design. No really. It got me wondering if, like art of other forms, you can copyright a cake design. Well Theorists, it's about to get LEGAL!

  • This just proves that people need to grow a backbone. Trying to sue someone for “copying” a cake, sounds childish.

  • Some people just get overly greedy :/

  • I'm on a 4h road trip, hungry, and listening to a guy talking about cake. I want cake now 😥

  • Only a person who votes for Biden will get mad about a cake lol

  • You should make a song theory channel :)

  • My name is jude AHHHH

  • Original cake oc (do not steal)

  • autally any picture you take is copyrighted so if miley autally used the orginal picture and alterned her face in it rather then make a new cake thtat looks the same it would then be copyrighted

  • Even soda is copyrighted


  • is a hotdog / burger considered a sandwich tho-

  • The people who have abortions should be charged millions of dollars cause there killing someone with out there permission.

  • Sometimes, I think "hmmm, I should think of something insane just in case mat makes a vid bout it so I can be like WOW I THOUGHT OF THAT TOOOOO!!!" And I never thought of one... OK HERE I GO IMMA SIT HERE FOR AGES AND THINK OF A BUNCHA RANDOM CRAP.

  • 10:14. a missed opportunity to say Cake Dismissed

  • Wow I’m so glad that my friend is vegan and I’ve never had a birthday cake

  • I will copyright my face and sue my school now

  • My mom has a bakery its called Gaby's Cookies and bakery and she also she made a unicorn cake like in the thumb nail

  • First

  • So wait. Writing on a cake in the most basic style is artistic? Doubtful.

  • My cousin got the cake in the thumbnail.

  • 1:27 it most certainly is NOT!! 😡

  • Yuuup

  • Bold of her to assume that a celebrity comes up with the ideas of their promotional photos.

  • I care a lot about copyright but can you really call that messy cake that literally anyone who knows how to operate an oven can make "artwork"????? lol I'm surprised she gets that many likes on insta with those mediocre designs. The icing isn't even even lol

  • So something like the big Mac and the big jack? Our burgerking rename took the big Mac and just made it chicken after maccas already did it :/

  • The "MILF" lamp is false. It's called "MIL" and the "F" is just added for fun.

  • MatPat should make his own funland. The name would be Theory Land

  • My cake illegal bc im too T H I C C

  • How did you know I put poison in my cake i was going to give to D.J.T

  • Abortion IS murder! Planned parenthood ARE murderers!!! How dare they

  • People sue way to much these days.....

  • We really need torte reform.


  • The Sweet Feminist is an idiot. How could Miley know?

  • Cake Karen

  • i simp for science

  • Imagine Pepsi writing a poem to make their recipe illegal to copy

  • If you can describe Abortion so that it's both accurate and not the murder of babies, I'll bake you a cake. Because it's literally infanticide.

  • I think you guys are missing a huge point. Alot of influencers/idols make money on every instagram post, the more attention they get, the more money they make. The reason WHY miley got so much attention to that post was because of the cake, so its fair for the person who created the cake to want compensation. Because miley is literally profiting off the cake and the original creator is not.

  • Today was the day I finally dived in to this opening song, and man, this is great! Are you a genious?

  • This gives a whole new meaning to, "The cake is a lie".

  • Dam. So that disgusting unicorn cakes illegal. 👌😌👌 GREATTT

  • How is abortion healthcare?

  • I love the subtext of using a Tarantino film poster for an "original" work. Well done.

  • The genes inside your body aren't patented. They can patent isolated copies of those genes in a laboratory. Important distinction.

  • abortion is murder. no matter who does it.

  • Yes, as a member of the animation community, I can say that we’ve had HUGE issues with copyrights on characters and people being accused of tracing before- people get inspiration from each other, but newer artists/animators often don’t know the law or social expectations of the community, sometimes to a point where certain people have left because they got sick of all the drama :P

  • I just can't even man. Yeah, the writing style looks very similar but there are subtle things that actually differ the cakes. I am not a professional at all but I can see a few differences in each cake Miley's frosting was lighter and the words were written in a similar style but were obviously not written by the same people. Look at the way the A is written on both cakes they are written differently

  • Who else thinks that the copy right logo looks like the capsule corp logo?

  • This is why "the cake was a lie"

  • Give us 4th channel the conspiracy theorists are waiting

  • the cake on the title is the same one my sister had on her b-day

  • Someone:Wait it's all cake Phoenix, matpat,Etc:it always was If you don't know who phoenix sc

  • any one here watch candyman

  • Imagine copyrighting a word so only YOU can say it. That be rlly stupid but cool

  • I didn't think I would make an episode about cake law subways bread is actually cake

  • Abortion is murder.

  • Chef Josh from the Mythical Society(Rhett and Link) has a Podcast "A Hot Dog is a Sandwitch"

  • Karens!!!

  • I mean...I'm not really a cake person, so....

  • Imagine our ancestors watching us looking at a video to see if cake is copyright

  • I feel like everyone gonna trademark everything

  • I don’t like cake-

  • ©™®

  • Collab with Legal Eagle anyone?

  • shes a feminist her opinion is invalid

  • I don't eat cakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Murder is also illegal

  • The "sweet feminist" is such an oxymoron.

  • Therapist: Singing Matpat doesn't exist, he can't hurt you. Singing Matpat: 3:54

  • So the cake IS a lie! Portal was right!

  • Yang milih allah like 40000 ya.

  • That intro. You ever just patent your DNA?

  • Well, if someone copied the food theory cake, it would be free advertisement.

  • Just feminists being the happy, kind people they always tend to be. Ha!

  • Man this guy used the Coc 3 day shield graphic a lot in this video

  • Yeah, I didn't think I would wake up and watch this. 3:54

  • Copyright and trademark law are fundamentally broken and shouldn't exist in the age of the internet.

  • Huh didnt know ikea sold milfs....

  • When toxic feminists run out of people to attack so they start cannibalising

  • Yup™

  • extreme feminism and miley cyrus. I hate this combo. the video was good though.

  • strong opinions? more like stupid opinions.

  • This is like when someone tells an artist they stole a pose.

  • In my opinion just because someone used "her," font and the same style doesn't mean she can claim it it's ridiculous I feel like 60 minutes is more reasonable

  • It always taste a little to good

  • Can gingerbread houses be copyrighted

  • I like the Intro

  • clicked on food theory to enjoy my food not think about coat hangers and lose my appitite, thanks matpat

  • the shield you are using is from my favorite game Clash Of Clans

  • am I the only one who thinks the cake look different edit cakes

  • I guess I’m illegal now

  • So... if you can copyright just about anything the problem will eventually be that no one human on EARTH can display anything in a photograph or image on any form of media. If this continues this is likely the world we will come to. In fact it’s already difficult enough for creators to show pretty much anything they own in a video as it could be classed under law as Theft. So any future youtuber has to make their own products and designs for literally everything in their home in order to film or take photos of any of it

  • 0:14 Everybody gangsta till you get sued for your dna

  • Illegal cake? wow matpat.

  • Matt pretending like he was working all year for the cancer child thing... while he was only contacted to do so a month beforehand...

  • What if Miley bought the cake from her? 🤷‍♀️

  • oh no my cake

  • ‘Inedible sculptures’ theory

  • Did MatPat just try to hypnotize me into subscribing 10:10
