This is why I hate what Didney and their endless copyright extensions have done to the public domain. I'd love to see this kind of shit happening with Batman, Mickey Mouse and like 5000 other characters that will now never be out of copyright thanks to them.
>>78852070 When the guy who made the Stormtrooper helmets made reproductions to pay for the medical bills of his children, Lucas slapped him with a 20 million dollar lawsuit. For selling nineteen of them for a hundred bucks a pop.
The guy fought back, and won in the UK. He can't sell them in the US, but sells them in the EU for $750 each now. Identical to the ones in the movie mind you, hence the price being so steep. He says thanks to the Force Awakens bump, he finally sold off enough to pay for the legal fees.
Meaning only now can he actually put his money towards his family.
>>78853828 This is not an accurate summary of the case. You're right on the basics but it wasn't medical bills but private school fees, it was the US court's settlement that was 20 mil, he sold the first helmet for £6000 and that's what made him starting making them (in the 2000s) and he didn't exactly win in the UK, it was decided on appeal Lucasfilm had no copyright but the US judgement was still UK enforceable. His legal fees were about £700,000
No dicking around, no MUH NON-INVLOVEMENT WITH ACTUAL EVENTS THAT COULD HAPPEN IRL, no MUH ETHICS IN TERRORISM just straight up: "You mess with my shit, I kill you and put your corpse on display for the readers."
>>78856357 Hey, in pretty much all cases, those fellas knew that they were comitting a crime. They just figured that Fantomah would not get them.
>>78856453 >>78856434 she, like stardust, is a representation of the author's desire to hurt people. He was an angry drunkard who worked as a painter and only did comics as a way to cash quick bucks. He didn't put much effort in the art or story. I'm pretty sure the "plot" were just an excuse to enact the punishments he had fantasized about when getting drunk. If you read it the faces of the gangsters and poachers are strangely detailed and with distinguishing individual features. I think those were the faces of people who had crossed him and the punishments are what he wished he could do to them.
