    Actually, HHN is mostly a local affair, attended by people who go every year. I assure you, the audience knows what park they're in. The fact that it's clearly a parody show allows it, and I don't see what the big deal is anyway.

    From what I understand, and that isn't much, something can be deemed to be outside fair use if it can be proved it is confusing people regarding the real public. Universal probably gets away with it because A) it's clearly Universal Orlando and B) most people watching the show are probably on a side trip outside of Walt Disney World.

    If it's being done as a parody (as Saturday Night have done with
    several Disney topics), there is some leeway there for portraying
    various copyrighted things. Same thing for Political Cartoons.

    BUT for Universal Studios to deliberately place 2 Disney Characters
    into one of there own shows, in their own park is a blatant abuse.

    Oh, I just remembered, I heard Knotts Scarry Farm, in some of
    there shows, has poked fun at Disneyland.

    But it still seems that for one theme park to make fun of,
    abuse character rights owned by another company, when
    it's being done in another theme park, just a couple miles away.

    Like I said before, it would be like Universal Studio showing
    a person dressed up as Mickey Mouse in there park, I can't
    believe that would be legal, either.

    Certainly seems like copyright infringement.
    Who knows how or why they can do it, but they've been doing this show for close to 20 years now and they've been using characters from other movies and TV shows. A couple of years before that when the first POTC came out they had someone playing Barbossa that was rolled out on Stage and acted like an animatronic. It was hilarious!

    Also, as far as I know Copyright Infringement has to do with illegally distributing or unauthorized public showings. We need to get a lawyer in here to explain better!

    Sweet! I can't wait to check it out when I go to HHN next week. The Bill and Ted show is always a must see for me!

    Looks like it's part of the Bill & Ted Halloween show they do over at Universal. Looks hilarious!

    Disney needs to hire that Captain Jack... ROWAR! :evil:

    So, why are they doing this at Universal Orlando and not at WDW?
