After many years, the heirs of Superman’s co-creator, Jerry Siegel, have won the copyright to Superman. Read about Superman’s copyright here.
Seventy years ago, in 1938, Jerome Siegel and Joseph Shuster created Superman and sold the rights to Detective Comics (DC Comics, owned by Time Warner) for a mere $130. Time Warner is challenging the court decision. For the details, follow the link as the story clearly explains the circumstances and situations.
I strongly believe in Creator’s rights and wish that Siegel and Shuster were able to profit from Superman long ago. But now the decision is late. I’m happy for his heirs, but am upset over the legal situation that kept Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster from becoming wealthy from Superman
