1brandonbwiiFri 31st Jul 2009 I strive to be a playwright. It's something I wanted to do for years. A play I'm currently working on involves a variety of fairy tales and I want to know the legal situation involving using a few of them. Particularly Cinderella. Since the play is a parody of sorts do I get a free pass, for a 10-15 minute piece involving her, or will I have to pay some sort of royalty for merely using her as a character? Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
