Fritz Hollings was known as the Senator from Disney, probably due to his great love of Disney characters.  Certainly there’s no way any extralegal copyright extensions could be related to campaign contributions or the likes.  Recently, George Lucas found out he needs his own Fritz Hollings and that he needs him placed on the courts in the UK. 

While both Disney and Lucas no doubt remain “committed to aggressively protecting its intellectual property rights,” Lucas lost a Star Wars copyright case in the UK to the prop designer who made the original movie’s storm trooper helmets.  I call this Episode #12, These are not the costumes you’re looking for.
