Disney to pay Brit publisher for c’right breach

World brief

Disney has agreed to pay $3 million to a small British music publisher for breaching copyright in the video release of “Fantasia.” The settlement is a big reduction in the $200 million that Boosey & Hawkes was seeking.

The company filed suit in 1993 for the use of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” to which it holds the rights, in the video.

Disney paid $6,000 to use the piece for “Fantasia’s” theatrical release in 1939, but a homevideo clause was, unsurprisingly, not included in the deal.
