Oh for crying out loud.

I'm never going to understand this whole parody thing. How does this get rejected but not others?

Because its disney, and disney could own this site in a matter of hours if they run this, just by using the same color of the original characters is too much

Disney tends to go after anything that is remotely similar to their products.That means that while some protected things can tread close to the line, somethings can not.

Look at it this way: it's wrong to steal. But stealing $1 candy bar from the grocery store is less likely to get you into as much trouble as stealing $100 from a bank, right? According to the law, both are illegal, but one is going to cost you a LOT more.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

but they don't even look like them any more. -_-'

you make it sound like if i drew a REALISTIC mouse, rabbit, dog and duck all together... Disney would still sue.


At this rate... I'm never gonna pull off a cool shirt with Oswald on it.

And Disney sure as hell will never make one. :C

I'm better off... making my own shirt and staying away form parodies on this site. -_-'

So if i drew a mouse and a bunny sitting together. No red, no blue, no clothes... Disney will still sue?

*sigh*

I think it's mostly the very similar to disney looking donald duck parody and pluto parody. And Mickey Mouse is known for his ears which are there.

I think it's the ears on your not-Mickey that kill it, if we were talking about any other IP owner. Pretty much everything about Mickey Mouse is protected. Look through this: Mickey Mouse Clubbed and Air Pirates. That was clear parody, and still attacked and eventually pulled.

Since Oswald has been brought back in the video games, I can't see him being any less protected than Mickey.

The ears? Not even the ears match Mickey. Mickey has two full circles... I ended up using my own way of drawing mouse ears. I always drew them round.

I wish companies like Disney would just make a sort of deal like... half of the $ goes to them or something.

At this rate... the world will never see any nice shirts with both the rabbit and the mouse together.

There's gotta be a loophole.

I laugh at you thinking disney would look over the fact that his ears are "round" not circles
