Bob Iger, what’s up? Lawyers ask “You could have done this earlier. Why didn’t you?”  I don’t have the $ to compete with the latest twist. The extension of the public domain law proved unnecessary. Lost Mickey? Steamboat Willie, not Mickey Mouse as we know him, enters the public domain in 2024 finally. No Sonny or  pols to do your bidding? While this copyright may be up, Disney still holds the trademark on Mickey as a “corporate mascot and identifier.” What does that mean?
