On October 21, 1971, [...] Disney accused the Pirates of copyright infringement, trademark infringement, unfair competition, intentional interference with business, and trade disparagement through the wrongful use of its characters. It stated that Disney, through "great effort and...large sums of money," had created characters whose "image of innocent delightfulness...are known and loved by people all over the world, particularly children" and that the defendants' efforts to "disparage and ridicule" these characters threatened to destroy Disney's business. The complaint requested that Disney be awarded all of the Pirates' profits, $5,000 for each copyright infringement, treble damages for the trademark infringement, punitive damages of $100,000 from each defendant, surrender of the offending books, and reimbursement of its attorneys' fees.

Disney filed a million dollar lawsuit against a family-owned clown company for trademark infringement. Marisol Perez-Chaveco and her husband run Kool Klown Party People in Claremont. The couple bought Winnie-the-Pooh, Eyeore and Tigger costumes on eBay for $700 and advertised the caracters on their company website, MySpace and Craig's List. Disney sent them three letters demanding them to remove the pictures and turn the costumes over to Disney so they can be destroyed. If not they would be sued. [ref]
