Netflix sues Grammy-winning creators of unofficial Bridgerton musical for copyright infringement

Another problem is the idea that the project has falsely advertised itself to the audience. The lawsuit claims that Netflix’s use of the “Bridgerton” trademark creates the illusion that the performance and merchandise have been approved.

As anyone with a small fraction of fandom experience knows, “Unofficial Bridgerton Musical” isn’t the first of its kind. There are several popular IP-based fan-made music parodies. The StarKid team created “Very Potter Musical” made the rotation go back to the big time in the 2010s. Even now, projects like “Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical” continue to turn on. And while the musical “Bridgerton” was very popular, a small project called #Ratatouiscal, aka “Ratatouille The TikTok Musical”.

In most of these cases, phrases like “A Musical Parody” keep these fan works out of trouble, along with acknowledging not owning the characters or trying to make a profit. AVPM was originally titled “Harry Potter: The Musical”, but changed its name after Warner Bros. send a legal warning to the creators. Due to its nature as a parody, Team Starkid is allowed to host the musical on their YouTube channel and owns the rights to the songs and scripts. But because they don’t own the rights to the Harry Potter characters, they can’t make money from the production.

“Funny” is a special case as it debuted last year as an online musical theatrical experience, starring such Broadway stars as André De Shields, Wayne Brady, Adam Lambert and Titus Burgess. It’s a community resource and even profits, but it all goes directly to the Actors Fund. Believe it or not, despite its history of protecting its assets, Disney gave the team their blessings.
