Conan Doyle Estate - Latest

So, the latest is that the ACD Estate is trying another avenue in its efforts to ensure that certain elements of Holmes remain in copyright.

Predictably there are cries of "again?" "won't they ever give up?" "it's just greed" and so on.

However, I don't blame them for trying. If you had a revenue stream that had proved fairly lucrative you'd probably try all avenues to stop it being cut off. To call it greed is, in my opinion, unjust. No one wants to lose money.

I'm not saying they are necessarily right and we can leave the legal system in the US to sort that one out but I understand where they are coming from.
