Disney goes postal

Disney goes postal

One hundred and thirty-two unauthorized Disney stamps from the Sheikdoms of Sharjah and Fujeira hit the market in 1972. The Walt Disney Company took them to court in France and won on infringement of copyright but the harm had already been done. These stamps are frowned upon by professional stamp collectors because they were obviously produced for collectors and not postal use.
Sharjah once had its own post office. Who knew?

By the way, over at your number one favourite blog, Keefieboy has gone postal, too. You might say he is P.O.-ed.
