There is often much to admire about the tenacity to go tilting at windmills as today's almost total repeat attempt of an already once failed copyright suit against the Walt Disney Company over Oscar winner Zootopia charged anew into the docket.
It’s a fox-eat-fox world out there, and Disney apparently has avoided becoming a meal. A California judge today threw out a big-money copyright lawsuit against its Oscar-winning toon Zootopia by the screenwriter of Total Recall, who had claimed that the studio ripped off his same-titled pitch.
Having taken the Oscar for Best Animated Feature this year and brought in more than $1 billion globally at the box office,Zootopia is now in a very different type of arena – the courts. And Disney is already fighting back.
