The Death and Return of Copyright

copyrightman

Superman will finally return home.

The New York Times just confirmed that Jerome Seigel’s heirs will receive a share of the Superman copyright, making them co-propietors with Time Warner. In 1938, Mr. Seigel and co-creator Joe Shuster sold the Superman rights to Detective Comics for $130. Due to contractual issues and various circumstances, the court ruled his heirs are partially entitled to the character. It’s a complex issue, and well worth a read.

Sure, this isn’t gaming news, but it is proof that a fight well fought is a fight well earned. Congratulations to the Seigel & Shuster families.

What, you still want some videogames? Here, enjoy this trip down Superman lane after the jump…
