This is our ULTIMATE guide to the Mickey Mouse copyright.

For almost 100 years, Disney has been fiercely protective of its most iconic character—Mickey Mouse. Disney holds the copyright to this beloved character, but it won’t last forever. In 2023, the copyright protection to the likeness of Mickey Mouse will end. After that, Mickey Mouse will enter the public domain, meaning anyone can use the character in their creative works without Disney’s permission or payment.

If you want to know why this is happening and what it means for Mickey Mouse, read on. This guide explains all you need to know about the Mickey Mouse copyright.

In this guide, we discuss:

> The Basics of Copyrights

> The Mickey Mouse Copyright

> The End of the Mickey Mouse Copyright

> Disney’s Trademarks for Mickey Mouse

Let’s jump in!
