It was too tempting not to violate copyright appropriate pop culture for today’s Op-Ed about the legitamacy of copyright. The long arm of Disney is strong and litigious. Reading about The Mickey Mouse Protection Act on wikipedia whileborrowing his ears is like reading WedMD when you have a headache- I thought I was dead until I talked to a professional.
Besides, I believe there is some contention if Shakespeare violated copyright himself.
Big love to Aviva Michaelov, art director of Op-Ed who pushed me away from my original sketch of Garfield and Mona Lisa.
