March 15, 2010


THR, Esq. reports that children of comic book icon Jack Kirby have officially sued Marvel to terminate copyrights and gain profits from comic book creations.

The suit follows the September move by the estate to send out 45 notices of termination to Marvel and owner the Walt Disney Co., as well as Sony, Universal, Fox and others, hoping to recapture control of much of Kirby's work. In January, Marvel filed its own lawsuit, claiming the creations were "work-made-for-hire" and that Marvel was the real "author" of such works under the 1909 Copyright Act.
