Mary Richards reportingDisney is a little upset with Brigham Young University. The Deseret News reports Disney has sent a letter to the university's Young Ambassadors, saying they were using three songs without the proper permission.

The singing and dancing group was apparently using songs from "Tarzan," "Hercules" and "Mary Poppins" without the right license. The group just left for a tour of Australia and quickly replaced the three songs with older numbers in its 90-minute performance.

The group will talk it over with Disney when it gets back, but the copyright issue probably won't chill relations between the two. Disney often hires Young Ambassadors to perform in its theme parks.
