Zootopia Was Sued for Copyright Violations
On March 21, 2017, Disney was sued for copyright infringement by Esplanade Productions, a production firm owned by Gary L. Goldman, the co-scribe of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 smash picture Total Recall. This put a huge crimp in the plans for a prospective Zootopia 2. According to the complaint, Goldman first approached Disney on the idea for Looney back in the year 2000, and then again in 2009. The plot centred on an introverted animator who patterned his own life on the popular TV show Zootopia.
Goldman’s pitches to Disney were turned down twice. In his case against Disney, Goldman alleged that the company had stolen his ideas for characters, locations, and titles. Goldman submitted a pitch, character descriptions, and an early concept sketch that he said was comparable to Disney’s Zootopia characters like Nick Wilde, Judy Hopps, Chief Bogo, and Flash.
Disney immediately responded to Goldman’s complaint, saying Deadline, “Mr. Goldman’s claim is replete with blatantly false assertions. It’s an unprincipled effort to take credit for a hit movie he had nothing to do with making, and we will fight it in court with all we’ve got. Goldman and Disney spent months debating the suit’s merits but were unable to reach a settlement.
U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald eventually rejected the copyright infringement accusations after roughly 8 months. “Goldman’s attempt to make the narratives of Looney and Zootopia look comparable were forced,” Fitzgerald said. All asserted parallels between the works were concepts, not narrative lines or sequences of events, and hence were too broad to be covered by copyright law.
Esplanade Productions and Goldman challenged Fitzgerald’s ruling to the Ninth Circuit. Judge Fitzgerald’s ruling was upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit a year and a half later. The court ruled against Goldman’s appeal.
