Unauthorized Distribution of your Childhood Violates Federal Copyright Law

Unauthorized Distribution of your Childhood Violates Federal Copyright Law

Sooner or later, we’ll get there.

It has recently come to Disney’s attention that your Facebook timeline has been displaying digitized video clips of your fifth-grade elementary school play (“Why I Am Thankful”), which includes copyrighted material owned by Disney Enterprises, Inc.

As a result of Disney’s acquisition of Jim Henson’s The Muppets in 2004, Marvel Entertainment in 2009, and Lucasfilm in 2012, the total and complete copyright for your childhood (which consisted almost entirely of watching the Muppet Show, reading comic books, and acting out scenes from Star Wars) is now owned exclusively by The Walt Disney company.
