    Disney Is Trying To Shut Down The Disney Experience!

    Now it's time, to say goodbye,

    To all our lawyer fees.

    C-O-P, Y-R-I, R-I-G-H-T


    That's right folks. This was just posted by Trader Sam over at The Disney Experience:

    It's finally happened; Disney is trying to shut me down. Apparently, they don't like the amount of copyrighted material that is currently being used in the Disney Experience, particularly all of the Disneyland 50th material (seems they want to keep that part of the market to themselves). Unless I can come up with an alternate site design that uses completely original graphics, I'm gonna have to say goodbye.

    If I do come up with something (I'm sure I can), I'll still have to figure out what to do with the content. A lot of it will have to be scaled back and/or removed entirely. My main concern are the wallpapers, icons, and mouse cursors, since they typically depict Disney characters (copyright issues).

    Check the Disney Experience and/or newsletter further information.
    Sad, Sad, Sad. Any thoughts?

    Oh come on, this is really bad, he has a terrific Site and it is not at all negative.
    I love the stories from families and castmembers. He had an excellent Haunted Mansion Site going for a while.

    This is one of the Top Disney sites that I have ever seen.
    Better then the DL Site.

    Disney's paranoid! It's just a fan site! They should be glad they still have fans >.<

    Disney should learn from lucas arts. As long as you are not making a profit George Lucas doesn't care if you use his copyrighted materials. He understands that you should let the fans embrace your creation.
    It's like i'm talking to a monkey, a really really big stupid monkey named Kronk.

    how ridiculous! TDE is one of the best Disney fansites! Disney Co. is jealous because this site offers desktop freebies and activities that they don't bother to compete with and provide on their own site.
    double the powder and shorten the fuse?

    He put April Fool!! in the same color as the background so that you cant see it. When I looked at in in my aggregator (thunderbird) I could see it.
