Australia Pisses Off Disney
Interesting. SFW, mostly.
Snowwhite and the seven dwarfs belong to the brothers Grimm, and the story is out of copyright.
Not if they're sneezy, dopey, doc, sleepy, grumpy, happy, and bashful, they're not.
So THAT'S what the words to Carmina Burana really mean. I always wondered.
Note it was Raspberry beer and Jameison is now on the map.
Thank you Disney.
Story is out of copyright, yes.
Snow White? Check. Seven dwarves? Check.
Character with that look, red bow in hair, and 7 dwarves with those appearances? Sorry, that is Disney property.
Really? Disney had a film where she was a skank ho?
Huh. Guess I missed that one.
It was in the subtext. 7 dwarves. One Snow White. You do the math.
Wow Aaron, that is a piss poor argument.
Using that reasoning, it's OK to make a film where Mickey Mouse fucks burros since Disney never had a film with Mickey Mouse fucking burros so it's not an infringement.
Likewise the fair use under parody claims. Parody claims in commercial advertisements are held to far higher scrutiny than artistic parody.
All art has always been an evolution of copies from previous examples.
But 'recently' some greedy Americans want to take ownership of ideas floating through all minds. And extend those 'rights' over generations.
Disney isn't saying they own snow white. They are saying that that specific snow white with the dwarves with that specific appearance are theirs. And they are right.
And there are people who claim that they own the rights to parts of my DNA.
Fuck them as well.
Citizen, what is your national id, health insurance, or SS number?
If you can answer that without having to go dig it up, then they are right, they own you.
Actually, fuck you CC, you greedy douchebag.

Greedy? I'm not the one here that's wanting to be stealing from Disney.
Please explain how making a copy is stealing.

Oh, Frak: That you can even ASK that shows you probably wouldn't understand the answer.
And you call yourself a software guy. Did the 1980's disk-copying craze teach you NOTHING?
> Please explain how making a copy is stealing.
It is not even making a copy.
It is an entirely new painting with a hint of the Disney version.
"hint of the Disney version"? Are you even listening to yourself?
I mean, I posted the OP, so obviously I think Disney is over-reacting, but STILL I acknowledge Disney's right to react.
> but STILL I acknowledge Disney's right to react.
That is what is wrong.
Shoot, I defend YOUR right to react too, is that a problem?
