It’s never to late to claim a copyright
Big week for copyright news. First there was the news that the copyright associated with Action Comics #1 had been awarded to the family of Jerry Siegel, putting the rights to Superman into question. And then today it was announced that a professor has filled suit against Einstein’s notes, a lecture notes reseller, on the grounds that his students’ notes are derivative works of his lectures. This suit appears to be targeted at the practice of selling notes to students so that they may skip out on classes, but it could set an interesting precedent.
