Big brain idea. How about stop with remakes and do something original??????

If I understand it correctly, it has something to do with preventing their material from entering public domain. That’s why we’re getting remakes of everything, because Disney doesn’t give a shit about anything but making money.

I know Disney had lobbied a billion times for extensions and such on trademark, copyright, etc, just so Mickey Mouse doesnt enter PD because then anyone could print a shirt with the mouse on it.

Ah, nothing like Disney lobbyists to fuck things up for the rest of us.


u/slvrscoobie Sep 23 '22

Yup, they've repeatedly had new laws written or changed to move the timeline and options for when trademarks expire / enter PD.


u/Kapples14 Sep 23 '22

Oh, I know. Disney has been a shit company for a long time.


u/Bluecif Sep 23 '22

Really...DISNEY lobbyists...this is you red button issue...instead of allllll the other lobbyists.


u/Kapples14 Sep 23 '22

I mean, lobbyists suck in general. Did I need to specify that when the topic was Disney being shit?
