How 'Frozen' fandom changed Disney's stance on copyright infringement | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

'There's a reason Frozen was the highest-grossing animated film ever....

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, July 25, 2:23 AM


Chris Osterndorf:  "From films, to toys, to parks, Walt Disney's original vision has come to fruition so completely it’s hard to imagine even he knew what was possible.  And one of the chief ways Disney has kept that original vision intact is by building a reputation for being very, very litigious."

Greg Clemett's curator insight, July 26, 2:00 AM

Comic-Con: James Frey to Introduce 'Endgame' Universe With Panel, Puzzle, Interactive Game (Exclusive) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Endgame is James Frey's upcoming book, but to call it only a book would be vastly oversimplifying things.
While the first novel will hit stores Oct. 7, Frey's project is made up of the books (a planned trilogy), e-books, a puzzle, a game, a treasure hunt and an upcoming movie. The first YA book, set in the near present day, follows 12 teens as catastrophic events lead them on a worldwide search for three ancient keys that will save not only their bloodlines but the world.
