Winnie-the-Pooh Goes to Court

Pooh The estate of Stephen Slesinger is suing Disney, claiming that the company owes the estate hundreds of millions of dollars in concealed Winnie-the-Pooh royalties.  Slesinger obtained the licensing rights to Winnie-the-Pooh in 1930, and the estate has unsuccessfully sued Disney twice before.  

See Rachel Lee Harris, Winnie-the-Pooh Returns to Court, NY Times, Nov. 15, 2009.
