How could a cartoon maker and a Canadian oil and gas company cross paths? The whole point is that Paramount Resources Ltd. decided to name its subsidiary company nothing other than Pixar Petroleum Corporation.
Journalists have already managed to sarcastically ride through the apparent indifference of Canadian oilmen to American cinema. After all Paramount Resources already owned subsidiaries Summit Resources Inc. и Fox Drilling Inc., besides, she is a shareholder of the energy company MGM Energy Corp. The whole color of Hollywood in the collection.
That's only if Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc., Summit Entertainment и Twentieth Century Fox did not react in any way (and it seems that they are not going to react) to the use of such similar names, then Disney couldn't stay away. Even if it is completely incomprehensible how lawyers will be able to hold Canadians accountable, after all, oil production and animation are completely different industries. And it is doubtful that anyone other than specialists will know that in addition to the animation studio pixar animation there is also an oil producer Pixar Petroleum.
