    ...But try and put up a Cafe Press shop that sells items with the words "Disney" or "Walt" anywhere on them, or artworth with anything that even vaguely resembles mouse ears, and you're doomed. That's why we no longer sell "DisneyLies.com" t-shirts.

    Yes, the Extinct Attractions Club.

    Thanks for this link. It looks like a pretty good resource.

    What amazes me is: how do people get away with this? Obviously these tracks are copyrighted by Disney and I have a hard time believing Disney would give carte blanche permission to an amateur to use their music.

    The sellers have obviously put a lot of time and effort into these DVDs and are making money on them. Are they truly doing this illegally? Is Disney just not aware of this or is there some loop hole I'm missing?

    I've wondered about this general question for some time now in regards to amateur works sold on the Internet. Anyone have any ideas?
    Well, for Disney it'd be a fools mission to try and stop every copyright-infringing site. I think Disney realizes they have a strong fan bas on the internet and that it helps them in the end. All these sites do is continue our love of Disney and give us even more reason to go back. It's like Disney is getting free advertising.

    However, there is a strong rumor that Iger has a much tighter grip on the internet than Eisner had... so we may see some changes in the upcoming years.

    Iger talked about how the internet and technology was a key part of his new plan for the company... I can only hope he knows what he is doing!

    Which one was good and which weren't?

    As for the other, Disney files enough copyright lawsuits. They probably don't see this as that big a deal given their other lawsuit priorities.
