I think you missed the point of the animation. The story was somewhat
interesting but it should have been developed a little better, but I
suppose there is only so much you can do in 10 minutes.
I think what they were trying to illustrate what Blender can do. More
specifically I think they were trying to demonstrate what Blender on Linux
can do. If you forward to 10:06 in the credits you'll see the following.
3D modeling, animation, rendering, compositing software

Again, I don't think the actual release of this movie was to protect it
from copyright infringement, I think the purpose of this movie was to
demonstrate what Linux and Blender are capable of.
