I don't like it so much, but I have a question for you... can someone tell me why if I did a campaign like this, I'm sure Disney Pictures would sue me?????

Maybe cuz the tales this campaing refers to are public domain (and they are), and what is property of Disney is the character interpretation, thats why the illustrations have nothing to do with the disney style.

One of this links says: "Disney takes public domain works, like The Little Mermaid (written over 100 years ago, ergo, public domain), turns them into copyrighted works like their 1989 film, then aggressively litigates against anyone who mentions the fairytale, despite it technically being a public domain story. In other words, Disney makes its money off of stealing stories and ideas from the public domain, turning them into corporate property, and fighting anyone who tries to use them."

But I think it's not correct at all. I think that using the name "The Little Mermaid" anyone could sue you 'cause is the name of the fairytale, but using a drawing or a logo, evidently identical to the original one (even if it's property of a multinational that uses marketing to sell his products as sayed in another part of the same link) I think is not the same thing.

Just an example, with a movie, but is the same... Do you remember the Mask of Zorro? If if I am not wrong nowadays Zorro is a public domain character, so you can use him, you can make another movie, etc etc... but you can not use an Antonio Banderas image!

I'm not a Disney fan too, but if I had created a character with precise characteristics, I would not want that it was used by whoever.
