Marvel Suing Creators to Retain the Rights to Its CharactersPosted by thesurrealari on September 25, 2021 at 2:32 am
I’ve seen this story posted a number of times across social media recently, and I think it’s relevant for our group. I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but some of members are.

This is one of those situations that pops up every few years. It’s hard to really understand the lawsuits from the outside, since it’s stuff that was started long before publishers and creators kept good records.
Current creators are fully aware of the work-for-hire situation. It should be interesting to see how this plays out in the courts and if it will have any meaningful impact on the industry at large.

I spotted this on Youtube the other day and it reminded me of this thread.
