You need to watch Remix Manifesto (available on YouTube in 8 parts). Not only does it address Disney's hciycritpoal interpretation of Fair Use, but it tackles a much larger argument taking place: the freedom of ideas. Consider this (also brought up in Remix Manifesto): we could be a step away from curing cancer, but various parts of the formula are copyrighted and owned. Therefore, a doctor who owns part of the cancer cure formula can hoard that information as long as he or she likes. Pretty messed up, right? Although not all ideas are as serious or heavy as cancer, but this example sheds light on many other aspects of our lives owned and copyrighted by others. If we think about art, literature, music, fashion these are supposedly the cultural artifacts uniting individuals and communities, but how united can we possibly be when not even the Happy Birthday song is free (also owned by Walt Disney).
