Along with comic books’ growing success and popularity, the intellectual property rights associated with the them have become increasingly important and complicated. This panel will explore the copyright issues relevant to comic books with particular emphasis on protection for characters. In addition, leading members of the comic book industry will discuss the ways in which copyright touches the creative and business decisions that they face on a daily basis.
