After recent legal battles with Flux Pavilion and Deadmau5, Disney is getting into a bit of their own legal troubles.
When ID&T originally tried to bring Tomorrowland to the US, Disney fought back since they owned rights to the name Tomorrowland in the states. Disney forced ID&T to rebrand Tomorrowland into TomorrowWorld.
Now the tables have turned though as Disney is about to release its brand new film starring George Clooney and Hugh Laurie titled ‘Tomorrowland.' Even though ID&T doesn't own the rights to Tomorrowland in the US, they do however own the trademark rights to Tomorrowland in Luxembourg, Belgium and Netherlands.
“Disney has a trademark registration in the USA for the term Tomorrowland, dating back to 1970. With this registration, it was successfully able to prevent the music festival from calling itself Tomorrowland when it launched in the USA. However, the music festival has the rights to the term in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and has prevented Disney from using the name in these countries.”
Watch the preview for ‘Tomorrowland' below:
