The artist known as Denmark decided to make a street art commentary on Copyright Extension here in the United States, particularly on Disney's massive involvement in lobbying for this alteration, by making "Copyright Extention Needs To Stop" signage. Posted in Los Angeles, near the Disney Studios at Burbank, this display surely turned a few heads. According to the artist,

I recently did an installation in and around Los Angeles protesting Copyright Extension, which is Disney's very effective lobbying to keep Mickey Mouse, and works created thereafter, out of the public domain.  

One set of ears were set up on a short cut, on block away, leading north from Disney Studios in Burbank.  A route I can only imagine every long term exec from the company would take on their way home.  A week later, after someone removed this set of ears, the remaining sticks bled down the sign. Because that's when happens when you rip the ears off of a head, of course.

    Everybody loves shiny stuff, and now you can customize your platform toys with shiny paint from Montana. In my own experience, Montana has the best range of colors and best application of all the spray brands I've tried.
