Thoughts

So where do I stand on the issue of painting the copyrighted characters of the big animation companies such as Disney? Good question, and one I get asked a fair bit.

Well.. I've spoken to Disney and they informed me that they are not persuing muralists on copyright as long as the mural is in somebody's private home. So... good.

I'm not convinced however that the issue will end there, many of their characters are copyrighted, so I half expect them to send a cease and desist my way one day, but until they send in the 'heavies' I'm gonna carry on giving kids, and adults, what they want.

Should also mention here that I do not own the copyright to the original Disney images that I have copied and painted by hand on to people's private walls, it's a bit of a grey area but I obviously don't own Cinderella, for example. My work is a derivative, but does not alter the monetry value of the original work.

The whole issue is very complex, so I'm not 100% sure about all the ins and outs, but there is a fair use policy which on the one hand states that you can use copyrighted material in limited ways, and that as long as the derivative work I produce does not effect the monetry value of the original work, then that's fine. But also I read somewhere that nobody is allowed to make any money!! It's all very confusing, how is the little guy who has found a way of earning a living doing something he's extrmely good at, supposed to eat if he can't earn any money..?!


I'm not after riches, I don't want to hurt anybody,
I just want to earn a living doing what I do best - painting.
