    Angry Disney Beaten By Porn Producer

    Disney beaten by porn producer
    Friday, March 2, 2007


    Entertainment giant Disney has been forced to back down over its 'dreams come true' slogan - as it's already used by a British porn producer.

    45-year-old Michael Wightman from Newcastle, has trademarked 'A Place Where Dreams Come True' for his mobile phone blue film company.

    Disney also used the slogun to promote their theme parks until its lawyers backed down after a legal challenge.

    Mr Wightman said "It's a David v Goliath victory."

    Disney will now use 'The place where dreams come true'.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Wow, that's interesting. I'm actually a little bit surprised that Disney didn't check on the availability of that phrase. Oh well, there isn't much difference between "A Place Where Dreams Come True" and "The Place Where Dreams Come True."

    I think "the" Place is better than "A" Place, too. "the Place" makes it sound like if you want your dreams to come true, you better come to Disney, b/c that is the only place it's gonna happen. "A Place" makes it sound like your dreams could come true anywhere at anytime, so what's the rush to get to WDW???

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    I didn't catch it either the first time. I posted it because I found it really ironic that not only did they not check the name but of course it had to be a porn company that had it. Sheesh... more press on Disney.

    This mess also caused problems at Disneyland Paris. The slogan Where dreams come true was on the bottom of the newly issued 15th anniversary cast member nametags. All of them had to be recalled and and remade.

    Disney did much better with THE Place Dreams Come True. Leave it to some porn scum to make a big deal over this.



    You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
