Warner Bros. Wins Final Element of ‘Superman’ Copyright Case

The 9th circuit court of appeal has granted in favor of the studio

The 9th circuit court of appeal has ruled in favor of Warner Bros. in its lawsuit against the estates of Superman co-creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

In a statement, Warner Bros. said, “We are obviously very pleased with the court’s decision.”

The appellate court ruled 2-1 ruling in reaffirming the original ruling by District Judge Otis Wright III.

This ruling should close the case after a battle that began in 2003 when Shuster heir Mark Peary filed a copyright termination notice that led to these proceedings.
