My research topic is about the Mickey Mouse Law and the impact it has on all of us. While doing my research on the topic, I used the search engine Yippy and Google. I mostly kept finding websites similar to each other when I type in “Mickey mouse law” or “the Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act”. While using yippy I came across many Wikipedia links and on Google many news articles, but they were all similar just in different wording. Though when I type in “Disney Suing people” I found many interesting stories about Disney suing people from drawing him on the wall to having Mickey mouse in the background of your vacation to Disney world. After reading most of the links about why Disney was suing people left and right, I really feel that Disney has gone way too far to really protect their property. I remember bringing up a question whether Disney could sue you for having a tattoo of Mickey mouse on your arm and after reading at least ten different stories, I’m afraid to say that they could probably claim your arm.
