An Appellate Expotition For Pooh And Friends

A federal judge in Los Angeles on Friday denied a bid by the granddaughter of Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne to reclaim the copyright to the classic children's books, dealing a setback to Milne's partner, The Walt Disney Co. . . . Disney attorney Daniel Petrocelli planned to appeal the case . . . to settle the question of whether a contract could supersede federal law.

[via Forbes/Reuters; more from Google News] Judge Florence-Marie Cooper made this determination, which hopefully will be posted at the Central District's site.
