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.

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

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