Radiohead’s ‘Burn the Witch’ Video Breaches Copyright, According to ‘Trumpton’ Animator’s Family
"We consider this a tarnishing of the brand"
Radiohead’s “Burn the Witch” video drew a lot of comparisons to the British stop-motion animated series Trumpton, which was created by Gordon Murray and debuted in 1967. Now, in a new interview with the Daily Mail, Murray’s son-in-law William Mollett has expressed his displeasure with the video, saying, “Radiohead should have sought our consent as we consider this a tarnishing of the brand.” He went on: “It is not something we would have authorized. We consider that there is a breach of copyright and we are deciding what to do next.”
