Ruling Against Warner's On Superman: How Legally Greedy Can Big Media Get?
I don't understand why the Warner Bros lot wasn't draped in black starting the middle of this week. Because the studio should be mourning the imminent loss of a shitload of Superman dollars. I've finally got my hands on the entire 72-page ruling Wednesday of U.S. District Court Judge Stephen G. Larson who concluded: "After 70 years, Jerome Siegel’s heirs regain what he granted so long ago — the copyright in the Superman material that was published in Action Comics, Vol. 1. What remains is an apportionment of profits, guided in some measure by the rulings contained in this Order, and a trial on whether to include the profits generated by DC Comics’ corporate sibling’s exploitation of the Superman."
Think about it: Siegel sold the rights to the action hero he created with Joseph Shuster to Detective Comics for $130, and his heirs got back ownership of the character in 1999 and can possibly lay claim to $50+ million of Warner Bros' and/or its DC Comics' cash. The Shusters look to clean up before too long, too. If you want all the Superman lawsuit's juicy background, Portfolio's Amy Wallace did a detailed article

"Hello everybody,
We're not available right now but we'll be back soon to bombard with our beloved plutonium bombs the Balkans (just like Yugoslavia). We 're sure that international institutions like the Nobel Foundation are going to appreciate our efforts and nominate our vice president for a Nobel Peace Prize. Hollywood "philanthropists" are going to "spin" him/her into a Saint in the Pantheon of "Ecology". Thank you for your call, all you stupid idiots of the AmericanHellenic descent fighting each other in Astoria and NYC, who don't seem to grasp that soon or later your "beloved" country is going to be History..."
Many thanx for being so (a-)pathetic and helping us materialize our master plan.
With lots of love from our political graveyard,
Bill and Hillary"

The season has already started for the criminal minds-and the financial interests they represent- that burned Hellas last August...There are no protective measures taken from the Hellenic State, no master plan outlined, no strategy communicated to firefighters, the local population (to all of us).
Take action. Don't stand still and wait in apathy when the nature, and the eco-system of the Hellenic State is going to be totally destroyed from the people who hate us. The clock is ticking...The island of Sklopelos' forests were the first to go, eliminated by fire a few days ago. BEWARE! MORE WILL FOLLOW.
