Dangerous brinkmanship from Kim Jong-un:

Mickey Mouse and Winnie the Pooh took the stage in North Korea during a concert for new leader Kim Jong-un in an unusual performance featuring Disney characters.

Performers dressed as some of America's best-known cartoon characters pranced as footage from Snow White, Dumbo, Beauty and the Beast and other popular Disney films played on a huge backdrop, according to still photos shown on state TV on Saturday.

I really hope someone in the DPRK's leadership thought to acquire the proper permits. Such blatant disregard for the norms of civilised corporate intellectual property law will not stand.
