Yes I heard about that on. Apparently the copyright on Mickey Mouse cartoons is 
about to run out and Disney are pushing the line that it would be un-American 
if 
a "national icon" could be copied by nasty foreigners, etc.! They want a 
special 
exception to copyright laws, just for them, although I'm sure all the other 
mega 
corporations would soon be jumping on this band wagon! With Dubya in the White 
House I'm sure they will soon get what they want and to hell with the rest of 
us.

Of course the Disney trademarks and name would not be affected by the end of 
copyright on MM.
