Testing copyright law in the Magic Kingdom

Posted in business, culture, digital, emerging issues, law, media by thenextwavefutures on 24 May, 2007

The Core 77 design blog carries news of a short fim made by US university professor Eric Feldman to make a witty point about copyright and “fair use”. He’s constructed it entirely by mashing up snatches of Disney cartoons (maybe he has young children). It’s uncanny how the bad guys seem to have the lines which sound most like the Motion Picture Association of America. Feldman’s released the film under a Creative Commons license (3.0) [Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike] but Disney may not share the same view. Watch quickly before the ‘cease and desist’ letter arrives at YouTube.
