Was Disney Channel’s High School Musical a stolen idea? Paul Cozby thinks so. Cozby penned a musical of the same name and general plot (for instance; football player in Cozby’s version, basketball in Disney’s) and even owns the domain name HighSchoolMusical.com, which Disney tried to buy. This story on CBS11TV doesn’t give enough details to know if Cozby has a legitimate claim, but I find it very interesting on how many similarities there are.
