People Sue Disney Every Day

11 Feb

Well, at least I think they probably do. I do know for certain that reporters fail to check facts (or, well, to make sure that fact-checking gets done by their Editorial Assistants.)

John Frost at The Disney Blog calls bullshit on the latest wacko lawsuit against Disney, reported by Fox News: Local Man Sues Disney for $50 Million. Apparently Steven Stein of Clearwater, FL, claims to own the first picture ever drawn of Mickey Mouse, and also misunderstands copyright law to the extent that he believes this would give him copyright ownership.

I can only imagine that Steven Stein is representing himself, pro se. I can’t imagine any lawyer taking this case.

(Bonus points: After you click on the link to The Disney Blog, check out what the URL says.)

    I can assure you that Typepad sets that URL all on it’s own. Ken had nothing to do with it. Pretty funny though.
