This mashup of dozens of Disney cartoons explains the very basic principles of copyright and fair use. Fair warning: the opinions expressed in this video favor the public domain over copyright laws and companies who are profit-driven. The video itself is an interesting case study of fair use. The video wasn’t produced by Disney and I seriously doubt that the creators got Disney’s permission to use these clips. However, in my non-legal opinion, this is a transformative work. It doesn’t compete with the original work and it is educational, a critical commentary, and a parody at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t want to be sitting in a court room across from Disney lawyers and have to defend the legality of this video. But personally, I think it is brilliant.
