Yes, you can now draw pictures of Mickey Mouse without violating copyright

But only if you draw him (and Minnie) in black and white with no gloves. Most other images are still protected.

I recall that Hamas showed a video of someone wearing a Mickey Mouse-type costume about 15 years ago for a Palestinian children's TV show. I don't know if the Disney company took legal action against the use back then.

But now with Mickey in the public domain, I wonder if Mickey will be used in further propaganda without legal consequences.
