Never miss a Film Theory! ►

Disney is infamous for keeping a tight hold on it's copyright, including taking it to extremes with things that TECHNICALLY fall under public domain in their original format. Well, that is not what happened with Finding Nemo. You see, the story of Finding Nemo is VERY similar to a not as well known children's story. One that is NOT in the public domain. Today, Theorists, we are going to dive deep and figure out if Disney actually STOLE the story of Finding Nemo!

  • Don't threaten the mouse it knows all and it doesn't like you talking you better watch your back the mouse could be anywhere..

  • I got a film theory video! There is a new, free, movie place known as Tubi! And it has lots of movies. I was wondering if that's kinda illegal to take movies and let millions of people watch it for free.

  • Lawyer here. Copyright law rests heavily on the discretion of the presiding judge. Just take a look at the case of "Lee" and "Stylistic Lee"... they look EXACTLY THE SAME to a normal person, but the court still ruled that nobody copied from the other 🤣

  • Rumor has it that a certain production company heard the pitch for Babylon 5 from JMS and rejected it. A week later, they announced a new show called Deep Space 9. Any theories on that?

  • OBJECTION! The author pitched the idea to film companies in 1995, and Disney started the process of Finding Nemo in 1997. Disney could've heard of the idea, and changed it enough so that no one could throw accusations at Disney, and if so, Disney could point out all the differences and win the lawsuit.
