Feature Relates to Get Fuzzy Lawsuit

This feature on Boston-area sportscaster Bob Lobel puts his recent lawsuit over a crack in Darby Conley's Get Fuzzy in some context. I'm always confused by this kind of thing. If a particular source of distress for a well-known figure comes from trying to leave behind a specific characterization that has come to haunt that person, isn't that an admission that such a portrayal has reached a level of public currency that should make it fair game for any satirist, including a cartoonist like Conley?
