Disney Tolerates a Rap Parody of Its Critters. But Why?


The New York Times

The Walt Disney Co., despite being known for aggressively protecting its copyrights, has yet to crack down on YouTube video mash-ups that feature its animated characters singing to Soulja Boy's rap tune "Crank That." Disney declined to comment on the videos, this article says.

These are cute. And it's not just Disney in there. Dora, Spongebob, they are all getting in on the act.

I don't know why Disney gets so pissed off about this stuff. It's good for their image- it appears that they like to share, they care about the participating audience, in turn making audiences respect them.

Disney- stop stifling creativity!
