- Earlier this year a judge ruled that the heirs of Jerome Siegel were entitled to part of the copyright of Superman (rights that were sold for $130).
Note: Jerome Siegel's case was not unique, Jack Kirby did not have rights to many of the characters he created for Marvel. Even today, my comics knowledgeable friend says, there are comic book companies whose contracts strip the writer/creator of all rights to their characters.
