Walt Disney’s Aladdin’s lantern – made in Kuwait

The above ad was published in Kuwait in Al Anba daily newspaper on Saturday the 29th of January, 2011. Page: 16.

The ad features the famous Walt Disney characters which have nothing to do with the locally composed and written children’s play!!! I acknowledge the fact that no one has intellectual property over the character of Aladdin, however the illustrations used in this ad belong to Walt Disney and there are enough talented people in Kuwait who are more than capable of illustrating their own version of Aladdin and from the long list of sponsors it seems they are not short of funding to afford custom made illustrations that are more suited to their own play. Ironically the following scanned article published on the same page tackles the subject of intellectual property infringement against a renowned Egyptian actor!!!
