There is more information on this at these two sites if you would like to read more:
MouseTales (this one is written by a man named David Koenig, who wrote several books on Disney, including one on Disney animation called Mouse Under Glass. I would definately recommend reading it if you get the chance to.)
To fight against this decision, while we still have a change, there has been a petition created. Now, please DO NOT create your own petition, as it will only result in many petitions with a few signatures each, instead of one petition with many signatures. If you want to help, which I kindly ask that you do help, please pass this petition on to all the people you know!
