Trademark News & Screw-ups Disney Accused Of Plundering 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' In Copyright Lawsuit

Wonder if it's self-righteous arrogance or fact-based certainty on the part of Disney. On the one hand, it's hard to imagine that they would have let this whole thing become so public if they weren't sure they could win. Of course, it could be that the plaintiffs are too greedy and Disney is willing to take a chance on the amount of damages they'd have to pay but it could be a really dangerous gamble. On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time when a company becomes so big and feels so invincible that they assume they're going to simply muscle their way to a favorable judgment because they are "too big to fail." I don't know the details of the case and certainly I don't know the true details about the way the script made it into the movie. One thing I know for certain: waiting for almost 20 years until you bring about a copyright lawsuit against a multi-billion-dollar empire will not make your story look more believable.
