An Actual Copyright Lawyer Reviews the Zootopia Lawsuit

Source: IZRA
Remember how a little bit ago we covered that legal complaint that Gary Goldman brought against Disney, claiming that Zootopia stole his ideas?  Well, not to give this ridiculous case more attention than it deserves, but a copyright lawyer on Youtube named Leonard French decided to make a video about it.  He reads the key parts of the complaint, cites previous legal precedent in cases like this, and explains exactly what Goldman is trying to accomplish with his lawsuit.  It's a very thorough video, and I certainly appreciate him taking the time to put it together for us.  Legalese is always best when it's clearly explained, after all.

Check out the full video after the break!

  1. I hope and pray this Goldman guy doesn't have a leg to stand on in court. His claims seem to lack logic...given the detailed production history of this movie that's already available to the public (see "Imagining Zootopia", "The Art of Zootopia", the behind-the-scenes interviews and footage, etc). Plus the fact that Disney Animation (as well as Pixar) doesn't accept pitches from non-directors. And don't they have a system in place to prevent rejected pitches from being seen by the creative team? Plus, why would they go through all the trouble of hiring such talent and artistry, only to lazily copy/paste a rejected pitch? You would think someone at Disney would take a hint that the author of the pitch would find out eventually. They can't be that stupid.

    Like I said, none of this adds up...BUT I did research the mysterious quote from Byron Howard on the introduction page of the lawsuit. I Googled it word-for-word and adjusted the search to only show results prior to March 21, 2017...and guess what I found? ZERO results! A sign that something fishy is going on with this lawsuit.

    Disney could be fighting an uphill battle with this case, but I hope they win.

    1. I think that Byron Howard quote is from the making of Zootopia documentary.

  2. A lot of comments on the video seem to have a vendetta against Disney, but I feel that it's not fair to the team of Zootopia that they are being accused of stealing the idea just because Disney has a record of stolen ideas.

  10. Tell your lawyer immediately of changes or new information that might affect your case. On the same note, holding back information can as well prevent your lawyer from obtaining your desired results. That's why it is very important for you to be truthful and complete about the facts of your situation.http://www.immigrationway.com/
