    95-Year-Old Mouse in Legal Mouse Trap

    On 1 January 2024, it had been 95 years since Mickey Mouse first showed up in the short film “Steamboat Willy”. Now, the early versions of the famous mouse are free to use by anyone. Or are they? David Johansson, Senior Lecturer in Civil Law at Karlstad Business School, talks us through what copyright is and why it is important for a legal practitioner to understand the legislation surrounding intellectual property rights.

    Lately, several articles have made it seem as if Mickey Mouse is now public domain and therefore free to use by anyone. This is just partly true. What’s happened is that the copyright protection for the three Mickey Mouse short films produced in 1928 has expired. The three films are “Plane Crazy”, “The Gallopin’ Gaucho” and the more famous “Steamboat Willie”.

This can make it hard to resist the avalanche of advertisements, such as the campaigns leading up to Black Friday. As a counteraction, a sustainable alternative has made a successful entrance in a local shopping centre in Karlstad, and Karlstad University is there to conduct research.
