 Copyrights, Trademarks and Work For Hire

  I again substituted for Susan Brown's show, "Punk and Hardcore," playing hard rock music and covering several areas including:
     1. Copyright law is to protect creators and to allow them to benefit by their creativity, but eventually to let others benefit - such as Disney doing a lot of copyright-free material.
     2. The same villains and heroes are appearing in comics over and over partly or largely due to work for hire rules not allowing the creators of new characters to benefit from their creations.
     3. New ideas are given old names so the creators are still "giving" their ideas away.
     I spoke with Mike Lovitz, a Philadelphia lawyer who does panels on those subjects at the San Diego Con and gave the information I got from him. With Frank Mancuso.
