Lawsuit says Disney stole Hawaiian artist’s sea-turtle character

A Hawaiian artist sued Disney (DIS.N) in Los Angeles federal court on Tuesday, accusing the entertainment giant of copying his musical sea-turtle character Honu for a similar character at its Hawaiian resort.

Johnson Enos said Disney ripped off his work to create the “strikingly similar” ‘Olu Mel, who like Honu, is a blue-eyed sea turtle that plays the ukelele.

Representatives Disney and Enos did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the complaint. Reuters
