    Sounds about right for Scalia!

    That’s a Tex Avery rendering of Bugs Bunny – from the early years, e.g., The Heckling Hare.

    As long as the Corporations keep the Trademark status of the characters and their images up to date, the copyright on the OLD strips should be allowed to lapse.
    If the Corporations thought that the old strips were profitable, they would make them available for a reasonable fee. Since they don’t think it’s worth it, let the copyright lapse, allow copying and distribution, but not alteration. Alteration would be a violation of the Trademark, and thus could be prosecuted.

    Scalia is sometimes the star attraction at Republican fund raisers.

    i find it a coincidence (perhaps fittingly so) that this “classic” features an appearance by Superman on the same day they break the story of how, in the actual Superman comic, Clark Kent is quitting The Daily Planet because he doesn’t like the direction in which the paper is heading (and I’m not talking about the Planet’s circulation figures).

    Check the copyright date. This is an old strip that predates the change. Also, that’s the old-style Superman, anyway.

    Ruben probably used early versions of the characters on purpose: If copyright were ever allowed to lapse, it would free up the earliest appearances first. Rat-like Steamboat Willie Mickey, who seems to be the one the punk has at his mercy, would enter the public domain long before modern, corporate Mickey.

    That “punk” looks like Bill Gates in his closeup, Mr. DeMille.
