Dynamite Responds to ERB Suit


How about some legal news for your Saturday? A month or so back ERB Inc filed a lawsuit claiming trademark infringement and other issues against Dynamite Comics over their Warlord of Mars and Lord of the Jungle titles. Well the site Comic Beat has posted Dynamite's legal response http://www.comicsbeat.com/2012/04/05/dyanmite-responds-to-erb-in-tarzanjohn-carter-lawsuit/ and according to them "Dynamite’s defense is pretty simple: the books are in the public domain, and ERB, Inc., doesn’t have a trademark to infringe." We'll see where this goes. Some have suggested that Disney possibly had a hand in the suit but with John Carter now unimportant to them you have to wonder how far this will go?
