Hey again all Very Happy,

What is the extent of Disney patents concerning theming and particularly animatronics? Does Disney own ALL exclusive rights to modern animatronic concepts thereby making it impossible to theme an environment with life like characters without first gaining permission from Disney? Must new modifications and standard forms of applications be designed to avoid copyright infringement of Disney's patents, Or can standard animatronic applications to include direct puppeteer control be used?
Again, thank you very much for your time and effort Wink . -Silito

You can also go here.

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=0&f=S&l=50&TERM1=The+walt+disney+company&FIELD1=ASNM&co1=AND&TERM2=&FIELD2=&d=PTXT

It is a search page from the US pantent office. If you search by The Walt Disney Companies you get 49 patents. If you hae quicktime on your computer you can read the full text and see all the drawings in a normal reading size.
