Does anyone have a link to the "Disney Licensing Requirements"?  I can't seem to find it on the Disney Corporate website.  Thanks!  ~ Pamela

Legally, Disney might have a ownership of licensing rights.  I would suspect that they have tested their ownership in court, perhaps by having a pseudo-claim entered against themselves.
 
This does not mean that there is a licensing authority.  Their licensing rights are protected by society's general acceptance of their ownership.
 
What this means is, if you can demonstrate that you are working in the public good, then society should reward you with whatever licensing rights they choose to bestow on you.
 
Who empowers the licenser?

jacobusjay, your post is utter nonsense.  There is no such animal as "licensing" rights separate and apart from some other property right such as copyright, trademark or patent, among othres.  It isn't "society" in some specific sense that provides the "right to license", but the underlying intellectual property rights.
 
Also, courts do not entertain "pseudo claims."

Ouch!
 
I had a point but I best not make it now.
 
Well, perhaps, you can speak to the Union Indemnity fraud and the potential for using the court to convince claimants to drop their claims.
