Disney company targeted in a lawsuit and accused of stealing a project idea


“Although The Walt Disney Company rigorously enforces its copyrights, it has developed a culture that not only accepts the unauthorized copying of others’ original material, but encourages it,” Goldman said. The claim was rejected by Disney company. “Mr. Goldman’s lawsuit is riddled with patently false allegations. It is an unprincipled attempt to lay claim to a successful film he didn’t create, and we will vigorously defend against it in court,” their spokesman said. Goldman’s concept included a human animator who creates a cartoon animal world meant to reflect a complex human society which included class and power structures based on the characteristics of different species. Some characters from Goldman’s project are similar to those in Disney’s “Zootopia,” a fact he emphasized in his lawsuit. He also suggested that Disney used some dialogues from his project.
