Newsarama Digs Into Superman Copyright Claim by Siegel Estate

by on March 3, 2005

Newsarama.com has posted an update to the battle over copyright to Superboy between the estate of Jerry Siegel, co-creator of Superman with Joe Shuster, and Time-Warner, parent company of DC Comics. In addition to linking to the text of the Siegel’s complaints and Time-Warner’s repsonse and counterclaim, Newsarama notes that the Siegel estate has retained Marc Toberoff, a noted Hollywood producer and lawyer known for fierce battles for creators’ rights, and explains US copyright laws and how they apply to this case.

The case may set groundbreaking legal precedent for copyright law if it reaches trial.
