An early version of Disney’s Mickey Mouse will enter the public domain on January 1

  • Disney's copyright on early versions of Mickey and Minnie, including the 1928 film Steamboat Willie, has expired in the US, allowing anyone to rework and use those versions without permission or cost.
  • The US public domain now includes famous films, books, music, and characters from 1928, offering opportunities for creativity and distribution of older works.
  • However, Disney still holds trademarks on Mickey Mouse as a brand identifier and corporate mascot, imposing limits on the public's use of these images.
