Shit, shit, shit. The Rules state that American Copyright Law Shall be Extended As Necessary to Keep All Disney Characters, Animations, Creative Works, and Celluloid Chattels Generally Under Copyright for a Limited Time Nigh Unto Perpetuity.

Why are there so many songs about rabbits
and what’s on the other side?
Rabbits are tricksters, but only illusions,
and rabbits have nothing to hide.
So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it.

Someday we’ll find it, the Bugs Bunny connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

So is this under copyright still, or did it become public domain?


#14

Almost certainly a question for the lawyers who will be fighting over it.
