Question by kia z z: Is the use of ronald Mcdonald in a short film infringing copyrights?
For a short film i want to make one of the characters is dressed like ronald mcdonald and has his face painted a little like ronald mcdonals. Am i allowed to do that or is that infringement of copyrights?? Could i submit this film to short film festivals with Ronald Mcdonald? I know for most festivals you cant use any copyrighted music but i dont know about the use of famous characters. Thanks!
