Blackmask Rising
Blackmask getting sued by CondeNast: Doc Savage and Shadow holdout
...Whatever, in CN's defense, they've got a new law firm, and their attorney was mostly professional--apart from his choice of Christmas Eve as an appropriate night to drop bombs, of course. They even sent me rewewal notices on all 506 Doc and Shadow titles.
The deal offered was, remove the ebooks, stop printing, no harm done. Just walk away. And of course I've got the green books and the pink books and the yellow books, as well as other black books...
Needless to say, I turned them down. Cold. The deadline for settlement was yesterday (April 7), and we did not settle.
Couple reasons for this:
One, the boys' books issue. I mean, come on, 25% of books published to zero in two decade. This is attracting attention finally, but there is no author for young men quite like Dent.
Secondly, though the attorney for Conde Nast did keep stressing "you're running a business! you're running a business! For years!" He didn't answer when I said "of course; in a manner open, notorious, hostile and continuous."
See, there's this common law tradition of Adverse Possession, from the days when peasants would seize a vacant field and hold it, till it, etc., owning the property after some period of time. This principle got touched on during the orphan works comment period, but wasn't part of the orphan works recommendations.
