This is a short film put together by some folks at Stanford that I thought you might appreciate. It’s about 10 minutes long, but it is fantastically well done.

Basically, to illustrate copyright laws in the US, these filmmakers have edited a whack of animated Disney movies together to create a new work – a documentary about copyright.

Even if you don’t have any interest in copyright law, the editing alone is wonderful.

Hmm, wonder what Disney is going to say about this? How far will fair use and satire carry these guys against Mickey?
