An Adelaide chip shop has been served with a legal notice from the Disney corporation over claims that it has breached its copyright.

The ‘Frying Nemo’ shop in Hindmarsh has until Friday to amend or replace its livery, according to the terms of the Disney claim.

Owner Grace Crawford said that the business had consulted with graphic designers and altered its artwork to differentiate it from the Disney artwork prior to opening.

“We think its silly. We are definitely not going to close the store. We’ll fight to keep our name Frying Nemo,” she said.

She told Channel 7’s Sunrise programme that other businesses across the globe named Frying Nemo had not faced similar actions.

“Its only us that are being targeted,” she said.

“We are definitely surprised. We have only been open a few months. To target a small business in Adelaide is bizarre.”

Co-owner Andrew Crawford said he was boycotting all Disney movies this week.

Disney has not made any public statement at the time of publication.
