YES!

YES, YES, YES! This!!!

Republican members of Congress have fresh sights set on the Walt Disney Company with legislation dubbed the Copyright Restoration Clause Act that seeks to level the intellectual property playing field by stripping Disney of its monopoly on copyright protection — a situation Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) says came as a result of “special favors created by establishment politicians.” Steube introduced the House version of the bill this week, after Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced the bill earlier this year in the upper chamber.

Specifically, the legislation will limit new copyrights to 56 years, the length of time that was upheld for most of the last century. The bill would make the change retroactive for entertainment giants including the Walt Disney Company that had special exceptions to maintain copyrights for more than 100 years. If the bill becomes law, Disney would start losing protection on its oldest copyrights, including the original Mickey Mouse, though there would be a delayed implementation for some license holders to protect pre-existing contracts.

“This legislation will remove their special privileges and even the playing field for all entertainment companies,” Steube said of the bill. “Disney has leveraged their privileges to conduct reprehensible work with the Chinese Communist regime, force sexual indoctrination on America’s youth, and most recently, aid the murder of unborn babies.”

Just desserts.

  1. Before someone corrects me, I know that this bill has no chance of being
    passed this session.  I know that Pelosi will bury it. For now.

    But the words have been written and will be in the Congressional
    Record.  Corporate America will see this as what it is, a warning that
    people are watching and judging and beginning to take action.  They are
    marking their enemies and letting them know what the future holds for them.

    That we hate them as much as they hate us.
