Elon Musk Backs GOP Bid to Strip Disney of Mickey Mouse Copyright

Elon Musk appeared to voice his support for a Republican senator’s efforts to strip Walt Disney of its copyright to its iconic Mickey Mouse mascot.

Musk took to Twitter on Thursday in response to a news story about legislation proposed by US Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) that would limit Disney’s copyright protection over Mickey Mouse to the 56 years originally granted the company.

“Current copyright law in general goes absurdly far beyond protecting the original creator,” Musk tweeted on Thursday.

Musk then commented that an “overzealous” DMCA — the Digital Millennium Copyright Act — “is a plague on humanity.” . . .

The DMCA is a law passed by the US government in 1998. It offers creators of original content on the internet considerable protection from having their work distributed without consent. (Read more from “Elon Musk Backs GOP Bid to Strip Disney of Mickey Mouse Copyright” HERE)
