Question by ManOfSagacity: How come filmmakers of parodies do not get sued?
For example, look at the movie Meet the Spartans. How come the people who make such films are not sued for stealing ideas of other movies? However, in other instances, there are lawsuits over much more trivial things like a cartoon character showing up in a movie.

They have to ask the other films for permission to make fun of their films.
