* The contract Creator/BigFinish have with the BBC stipulated that all elements of the new ''Series/DoctorWho'' series cannot be used in their [[AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho Doctor Who audio dramas]]. That didn't stop them from throwing in the occasional implied ContinuityNod and ShoutOut. For example, the framing story for the [[ADayInTheLimelight Companion Chronicle]] ''The Catalyst'' apparently takes place after the Last Great Time War from the new series, which, for legal reasons, they don't explicitly mention. And a ShoutOut to the "What the Shakespeare!" line from the series 1 episode "The Unquiet Dead" appeared in ''The Kingmaker''.[[note]]Along with, ''possibly'' a background appearance by the Ninth Doctor, or just someone described as a "big eared northern chap". Nice and vague.[[/note]]
** As of 2015 the ban has been EX-TERMI-NATED, with the new Big Finish productions featuring [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E4ThePowerOfThree Kate Stewart]], [[Series/{{Torchwood}} Jack Harkness]], River Song and other new-Who characters. There's even a boxset entitled ''Classic Doctors, New Monsters'', in which the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors take on the Weeping Angels, Judoon and Sycorax.

** Another casualty is King Harkinian, who appears in both [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda the animated series]] and the CD-i games, but not in any of the Nintendo games. The legal status of said character is unknown since he's in a legal tangle with Philips, Nintendo, and Creator/DHXMedia (successors to Creator/DICEntertainment, the studio who made the animated series), so he is believed to be forbidden from any future games.

* The Doctor is barred from making an appearance in ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' on the grounds that children should not be watching the show at all, and should not be encouraged to do so by a cameo from him. His companions Jack and Martha are allowed to show up, his severed hand makes an appearance, and one plot features a major character played by an actor who [[YouLookFamiliar went on to play the Doctor several years later]], but that's as far as it goes. One US trailer for "Children of Earth" actually provides a particularly heartbreaking [[WatsonianVersusDoylist Watsonian]] explanation for the Doctor's absence in these DarkerAndEdgier storylines, when Gwen tearfully admits to the camera that she thinks the reason the Doctor never shows up is that he's disgusted with the DirtyBusiness Torchwood gets involved in. In contrast, the Doctor is allowed to show up on ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'', and did in both Creator/DavidTennant and Creator/MattSmith forms (and would have done in Creator/TomBaker form if not for Creator/ElisabethSladen's death).

* The estates of Siegel & Shuster, original creators of Franchise/{{Superman}}, won a court ruling that the concept of ComicBook/{{Superboy}} belonged to them. This is believed to have led to the death of one character, UsefulNotes/{{the Modern Age|OfComicBooks}} clone Superboy, and the renaming of another. Any writer at DC who suggests making another Superboy character will probably be denied, even if their idea is awesome. Even the ''WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes'' cartoon, which was ''based on'' the concept of Superboy, instead has a teenage "young Superman" as its star. And the DVD of the '60s Filmation Superman cartoons had the Superboy shorts deleted. A later ruling determined that Kon-El (the '90s clone Superboy) is different enough from the original Superboy ("our" Superman as a teenager) to be used with impunity. Even more, it's since been ruled that Superboy is now owned by DC Comics instead. However, there was the problem of ''Superman'', which started this mess and what many people think is the main reason for The Comicbook/{{New 52}}. Since then, it's been ruled that DC owns Superman and his concepts flat out.

** Similarly, issues over the ownership of ''Comicbook/DeathsHead'' and ''Circuit Breaker''; Marvel ramrodded both into non-''Transformers'' appearances (Circuit Breaker appeared in cameo in ''ComicBook/SecretWarsII'' and ''Death's Head'' in an editorial cartoon) before they "officially debuted" in their respective ''Transformers'' comics to ensure that they own the two characters and not Hasbro, meaning that their issues can't be reprinted by IDW Comics. Which in the case of Death's Head, means that none of his UK stories ("Galvatron: Wanted Dead or Alive" and "The Legacy of Unicron") can be published in the United States (though both stories did see release via comic shops via importing of the UK published trade paperbacks). Circuit Breaker's situation is more complicated, as the first three [=TPBs=] had to replace her early appearances with text summaries, though apparently IDW was FINALLY able to strike some sort of deal with Marvel to reprint #72-80 in full come the release of volumes #5 of their reprint series.

** Enforced in the games themselves to a certain degree; Disney has strict rules about how the franchises interact. This leads to both TheStationsOfTheCanon (in that the plots of the levels loosely follow the movies they're based on) and an AlienNonInterferenceClause (in that the natives of each world can't be told about other worlds), so that so people like Hercules, Auron or Mulan, don't go running off with Sora to save the universe. The rule of thumb seems to be that if you're tied to a particular movie, you're LockedOutOfTheLoop, though some characters get a bit of leeway in this, including [[spoiler: The Beast being a partner during Hollow Bastion]] in ''Kingdom Hearts I'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud, Zack]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Auron]] being plot-critical in the Colosseum stages in ''1'', ''Birth By Sleep'', and ''2'', [[spoiler: and the TRON level being Hollow Bastion's operating system]] in ''Kingdom Hearts II''.

* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' has this imposed on the game. Because Paramount owns the rights to the movies, they can't use anything from the J.J. Abrams films with the sole exception of mentioning what happened to Spock (as that happened in the Prime universe). To circumvent that, they've created a number of ships based on the ''Narada'' (they did originally identify them ''as'' Narada-class -- presumably, the fact that technically the ''Narada'' was from the Prime Universe made it borderline legally allowable) and the U.S.S. ''Vengeance'' in theme, but not in look. As well, they also can't use the Kzinti and, as such, created the SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Ferasan. The whole problem with the J.J. Abrams films was ultimately solved in time for the third expansion, ''Agents of Yesterday'', which allowed players to hop into the "Kelvin Timeline", buddy up with the character 0718 and even get to fly that universes' ''Constitution''-class. It was also ultimately revealed that Paramount had no problems with this -- it was Bad Robot Cryptic had to deal with.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' was struck from continuity by Creator/GeneRoddenberry sometime around the later films or when ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' was getting started, probably because of its more cartoonish elements and a couple of continuity issues. However, there has been a fan backlash (particularly over ''Yesteryear'', TAS' best episode and one which reveals a lot more of Spock's backstory) a couple of references in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''`s ContinuityPorn-laden fourth season, have tried to reverse this.

** The {{Irony}} is no one was especially afraid after ''Divine Wars'' because the Huckebein ''did'' show up (just briefly in the last episode as a set of blueprints). When the second promotional trailer for ''Original Generations'' was released, the Huckebein animation was removed and replaced with a different unit. At this point, a malicious, but clever fan spread rumors then-Bandai (before their merge with Namco) sued Banpresto over its use of the Huckebein.

One character, who in the games is suppose to use a Huckebein, starts with an anime-exclusive mass-produced Wildschwein, which looks less like a Huckebein. This really didn't matter in the long run, as the character will acquire a more powerful super robot, yet most fans believed Creator/NamcoBandai ordered the Huckebein removed because they didn't want a knockoff of the popular Gundam making what amounts to a cameo appearance, since most of the cast in ''The Inspector'' will be using their character-exclusive HumongousMecha by the end of the show, none of them being Huckebeins.

* When Disney bought the rights to ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' in 1995, this included all the merchandising rights for the show. As such, Nickelodeon is not allowed to use any of the ''Doug'' characters in '90s Nick-related merchandise (however Nick still owns the broadcasting and video rights for the original version of the show). To make up for it, Disney released a few ''Doug'' t-shirts in the late 2000s around the time Nick started releasing their '90s Nick related merchandise at stores such as Hot Topic and Spencers, but haven't ever since (granted, it's very rare for Disney to release any merchandise based off of their older television shows, and when they do it's normally only shows from the first few years of The Disney Afternoon).
