Clash Over Copyrights June 14, 2010

This article in USA Today: (Neil Gaiman, Todd McFarlane clash over copyrights – USATODAY.com.) covers a copyright dispute between comic book artists who may or may not have “co-created” characters that one of the artists has continued to use.

Copyrights are a tough area of the law, even when situations seem pretty clear, but in comics cases – things are always murky. Interesting piece, and interesting topic.

By the way, I finished Gaiman’s American Gods this weekend, so look for a review later today!  We’ve been on a bit of a hiatus, but we’re coming back, and look for guest posts!  If you’re interested in writing something, or have a topic you’d like to see us share, let us know!

Interesting topic. I doubt that too many true collaborations are papered over by a contract before a work is created. Might spoil some of the spontaneity…
