This week we reported on proposed changes at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and asked whether Disney is likely to take legal action over Banksy's new art exhibition called "Dismaland". Here are five things we learned this week.
Disney v 'Dismaland'?
When UK street artist Banksy revealed his latest venture, a ‘bemusement’ exhibition called “Dismaland”, there may have been a few raised eyebrows among intellectual property lawyers.
Based in a former outdoor swimming pool in the English town of Weston-super-Mare, the exhibition features some questionable nods to Disney, including a dilapidated Disney-style castle as well as several other artworks, some of which are plays on Disney characters.
