Nuts and Bolts: Snow White Copyright

March 20, 2017

Nuts & Bolts – Snow White Copyright
The original Snow White by Brothers Grimm is in the public domain and differs from Disney’s copyrighted adaptation. Please note although you may use the term Snow White, Disney Studios holds the copyright to their signature Snow White image and characteristics. Allowable Snow White characters are at GCU’s determination and discretion based on but not limited to the following characteristics:


1. red/blue/yellow dress
2. red headband
3. drawn in Disney style
4. naming of dwarfs
5. metadata that points to Disney
6. the huntsman bringing back a heart
If you submit Snow White designs you will need to deviate from Disney’s character per the above specifications.


TIP: Please see the GCU wiki for a partial list of other Intellectual Property considerations.


The difference is made in the details!
