okay people, i had stayed out of this thread for awhile because of
where i live and my intense dislike for its heavy handed practices
toward print and broadcast news reporting agencies (newspapers,
radio and television) threatening to pull all advertising from any
who report about kidnapped children and/or the people mugged, maimed
or murdered in or around its domain.
here’s a good reason for not even thinking about reproducing
anything that could be remotely construed as similar to a disney
design: w.e.d. will attempt to rip out both your ankles and your
kneecaps through your ears in order to leave you without a leg to
stand on in court. personal knowledge first hand case: my partner’s
parents started an rv park not far from disney (initial outlay about
$250,000.00) they named after his mother’s favorite fairy tale,
‘snow white’, from her, and my partner’s, native germany. disney
pounced with a suit. the parents answered in disbelief because the
fairy tale had been in the public domain in germany and the world
for eons. disney got nastier. more disbelief from parents who
countered that it was not disney’s right to have proprietary
ownership of any part of another country’s literary heritage. bottom
line: disney lost the suit - the only loss i’ve heard about. so…
unless you have an equally strong case - leave disney designs alone.
who has watched disney ruin her home town.
