The linked-to article is a hoot. If you haven't been following this, it's basically the latest paragraph in the latest chapter in the long-running Todd McFarlane/Neil Gaiman dispute over characters Gaiman created and McFarlane made use of in his combination comics/toy empire. Gaiman won the initial dispute over the initial set of characters, but then McFarlane introduced characters that seemed a lot like those characters -- too much, the judge now says. There will likely be 18 billion more days in court before this is all done, but maybe McFarlane will surprise us.
