Disney stole my thunder..part 2 (legal questions, sorta)
OK.. so now that Disney bought the rights to the book I was going to adapt to the silver screen... I'm wondering how long they have exclusive rights to it. The reason I ask is because Disney had a Peter Pan cartoon.. but that didn't stop people from making other Peter Pan movies. Granted, the cartoon was from the 50s. But even just a couple decades after, there were TV versions and plays and such. So.. how does this whole thing work? Am I gonna have to contact Disney to find out how long they own the rights?
(can you tell this is really bugging me?)
