Plaintiff sued Disney for common law misappropriation of his story idea in making its animated file Zootopia.  This decision affirms a summary judgment for Disney.  Plaintiff had no direct evidence of copying.  It did not produce evidence sufficient to allow a reasonable inference of copying either.  The allegedly copied elements of plaintiff’s story idea were not so unique as to make independent origination of the same idea improbable.  And there was no evidence to show that the Disney employees who came up with and developed Zootopia had any access to plaintiff’s story.  All plaintiff could show was that a different Disney employee received his story but not that the recipient passed the story along to those who created Disney’s film.
