Walt Disney is a hero of mine. Somebody else made a point that Woody

trade for Al Michaels. Can you find me a copy? I'm just saying that
even Walt Disney must be thawing in his grave at the amount of lawyers
he has put into business.
I am told on good authority that the intellectual-property lawyers form
a profit center for Disney. Protecting rights to Oswald and friends is
almost certainly part of their responsibility and part of their
opportunity to make money in the process.
