When You Wish Upon a Star and Consult an Attorney...

A couple in Britain wanted to put Winnie the Pooh on their child's gravestone, but The Walt Disney Co. turned down the request.

Disney had warned that a stonemason would be in breach of copyright if he included the bear's image along with "bear of very little brain," on the gravestone, The Telegraph reported. The parents had sought approval from Disney, but were rejected. [Link]
The company later reversed its decision.
