"Marvel Artist's Heirs Want Copyrights"

Michael Lovitz was quoted in a Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal article on the efforts by heirs of legendary artist Jack Kirby to recapture copyrights to characters he helped create from Marvel Entertainment, following Marvel's announced acquisition by the Walt Disney Company.  Before his death in 1994, Kirby had a role in creating characters for X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Iron Man, among others.  If successful, it "might actually make the properties more valuable because the terminations could cancel deals Marvel currently has with other studios," Michael told the publications  "There are all kinds of interesting questions this raises."
