Nathan Curnow “Dizney on Dry Ice”. Navigating trademarks

Writer Nathan Curnow approached Arts Law for legal advice on his screenplay “Dizney on Dry Ice”. The screenplay was based on a play Nathan produced for the Melbourne Comedy Festival in May 2006.

As a result of the face to face document review Arts Law arranged for Nathan, he received advice on trade mark issues, the potential legal issues surrounding the use of the Disney Corporation’s trade mark in relation to entertainment services and the comparative trade mark legal issues. Nathan also received advice on other legal issues including: defamation; use of or reference to specific Disney characters; use of musical works from Disney films/productions; and other general copyright issues.
