Disney's copyrights were about to expire. They couldn't bear to see
anyone else use Mickey Mouse (a Disney rip-off of a prior character that
was then in the public domain) in their own creations. They'd rather
stifle the public's right to creative works and send our civilization into
further decay than lose a dollar.

Congress bent over, lubed themselves up, and moaned lovingly, extending
copyrights 20 more years on top of whatever the previous limits were as
of a year or so ago.
