Winnie the Pooh goes public, more or less

Of copyright, note the post Winnie-the-Pooh, Bambi, and 400,000 sound recordings enter the public domain in 2022 , which includes text related to the protection of derivative works:

“You can use the left version of Winnie-the-Pooh along with all of his adorable personality traits from that book but you should probably steer clear of using the right version because there is probably enough ‘original, creative expression,’ added that would qualify for copyright,” says Duke's Jennifer Jenkins.
