Go, Read: SCOTUSblog's Tom Goldstein In Support Of The Supreme Court Hearing The Kirby/Marvel Case

The best write-up I've seen so far is here. I don't know if any of these briefs in support mean a damn thing, and I'm resigned to this going the other way. Still, it's been nice with a lot of these briefs, because they're written with a Supreme Court ruling in mind, talking about the issues more in terms of being reflective of desirable or undesirable law rather than whether or not the law -- no matter its nature -- was being adhered to. It really is too bad if Marvel can profit from an assumed relationship to Jack Kirby as a kind of employee when that seems clearly not their relationship by any rational measure you or I would describe someone working that way.
