The heroes of the fairy tales about Winnie the Pooh, created by the British Alexander Milne, no longer belong to Disney. This was reported by the Verge.
The fact is that from January 1, 2021, the “adventures of a teddy bear” have become public property.
The animation studio continues to control all of its screenshots of Winnie the Pooh’s history and related brands.
According to the magazine, in 2024 Disney will lose the copyright of the company symbol Mickey Mouse.
In addition to two novels about Winnie the Pooh and numerous poems, the novel “When the Sun Rises” by American author Ernest Hemingway has also ceased to be an object of intellectual property.
