Generalizing from the self:  We work to generally keep it away.  It gets too nasty too fast to be worth while.

Exactly. The first post or two were pretty benign, so I left them go. The moment it turned to campaigning, however, it went over the line.

Thanks for understanding folks!

Not a problem, Pat.... I did post my rebuttal by PM so as to keep it off the forums for the most part. My apologies to everyone else.

The Millenium Trilogy is amazing in novel form and the original films are solid as well.

DC (formally) Announces Watchmen Prequels

Covers and Other Details

I'm taking a wait-and-see approach until I read some of the stories. For me, it's about the storytelling and whether or not the writers get the right vibe that Moore was trying to convey in his original stories.

It's such a wonderful little universe to play in, I think it deserves a shot, but it could just fall flat on its face.
Work done by an officer's doppleganger in a parallel universe cannot be claimed as overtime.

Marvel demands $17,000 from Gary Friedrich, the creator of Ghost Rider, for selling Ghost Rider prints at conventions.

Marvel was recently bought by Disney for $4 billon. Nicolas Cage recently sold his copy of Action Comics #1 for over 2 million, and will have received similar for starring in Ghost Rider 2.

Gary Friedrich, the creator of Ghost Rider is, however, penniless. Yet Marvel is demanding immediate payment and that he is not allowed to say he is the creator of Ghost Rider for financial gain, such as doing an interview, in the future.

To be fair, this is the court's decision, not directly Marvel's (though I'm pretty sure they can ask the court for leniency if they so choose).

Witness the idiocy of the U.S. judicial system, especially with regard to matters of IP. The idea that you have to actively defend your copyright in every conceivable venue simultaneously stifles cultural advancement and makes it nigh impossible for small houses to defend their creations.  >:(

From what I recall, part of the lawsuit involves whether or not he signed the contract with Marvel that states any creation in their house is owned by them. Friedrich denies signing it but Marvel says he did and asked for the compensation from him for all the money he made. Marvel could have the kind heart here and just want it proven but not ask for the money. But I doubt the corporate honchos will allow it.
