The cartoon, called Hungry Hobos, was made in 1928 but the original film of it has been missing since before the Second World War.
The black and white film starred Oswald the Lucky Rabbit who was the prototype of Mickey Mouse.
Walt Disney made 26 films with Oswald in before he started his own company and changed the character into a rodent.
The features and behaviour of Oswald are clearly those of Mickey Mouse - a character that has endured ever since.
So yep, just reinstating Disney’s tendency to stealing someone else’s creativity.
SHOW TRAILER! SHARE OPEN ACCESS WORLDWIDE PEOPLE
Coming soon to your collection of videos with no rights reserved – a SHOW documentary will reflect on how students in Croatia were introduced to the Copyleft movement, Creative Commons licensing, Open Projects, Open Content movement, Open Access movement and the Right to Research Coalition action. Stay tuned, for we may offer you a New Year Surprise and include you in a conversation about a chance for the world of open values.
InTech OA publisher’s staff has jumped on board with Open Access Week 2011, organising a series of webcasts, round tables, debates, music events, movies and much more to promote Open Access and free flow of information. The 2 day event, SHOW 11, will be held on Oct. 26th-27th in Rijeka, Croatia.
The idea is to raise awareness among Croatian students about the importance of free flow of information and open access to research literature, which is not a familiar term, by raising questions about what students are already well familiar with, i.e., intellectual property.
The students will be introduced to Copyleft movement, Creative Commons licensing, Open Projects, Open Content movement, Open Access movement and the Right to Research Coalition action and they will be invited to join the debate about the chances for the world of open values.
