Kirby Estate Claim Goes POF!

Sadly, Jack Kirby’s estate lost its claim to reclaim copyright in his artwork. Too bad copyright law before 1978 recognized implied work-made-for-hire agreements. I guess the “Hulk Smash!” argument probably wouldn’t work either, at this point. Thoughts?

  1. I was very much hoping that Jack Kirby’s estate would win this so as to promote more knowledge of copyright law and the recent changes it has undergone. Plus, I don’t like work-for-hire and like the thought of artists reclaiming their rights – if that is the correct terminology.
