Do you work for Disney?


What do you consider a “violation”?

Any use of a Disney copyright or trademark by someone who is not Disney or a Disney business partner.

Are these really violations of Disney’s copyright?

Who knows? There is plenty of leeway under fair use to use corporate symbols and copyright characters, so long as you are doing so as part of a parody, social commentary, etc., and aren’t taking business away from the rights holder. Then again, I’m not a lawyer, so what do I know?

What if I see a violation?

Send your violations to: notalawyer (at) disneycopyrightviolations.com. Along with the image, be sure to include a description of where you found it, along with your name (for credit) and Web/blog site (if you want a link with your submission).

Note that I generally don’t publish Disney fan sites as violations.
