Jot: No copyrighted Characters on Library Mural

In '89 Disney threatened to sue three day care centers in Florida for having painted Mickey Mouse on their walls. The Mickey Murals were removed. No wonder a muralist, working for a public libary, chose a jungle theme instead of her original idea:
“I had a lot of designs, and I talked to the head librarian about what I had in mind,” she said. “My first idea was to have a perspective painting of library shelves going off into the distance, with books lying open on the ground and different kids’ book characters popping out of them. That would have been really hard to do because of copyright law."
