The Hollywood Reporter reports that Marc Toberoff is back in courts representing the estate of Jerry Siegel. Recently the courts declared that Warners were in the right regarding the fight over Superman and that after a deal in 2001, DC Comics owns the copyright on the character.
But Toberoff is now arguing that Warners did not live up to the details of that 2001 deal. THR quotes Toberoff as saying;
“DC failed to perform or to even tender performance by March 31, 2002, the date agreed upon. DC anticipatorily breached by instead demanding unacceptable new and revised terms as a condition to its performance; accordingly, the Siegels rescinded the agreement, and DC abandoned the agreement.”
And that he will be arguing that the “anticipatory transfer of terminated rights through contracts” are not compatible with the Copyright Act.
