Literary Works in Electronic Databases Copyright Litigation?
September 15, 2005 13 Comments
Any of you other “industry pros” receive a notice about the class action suit above? Seems freelancers are due some good money for pieces that were used without their explicit permission in electronic databases like LEXIS/NEXIS. Anyway, I received a worksheet to fill out with all my freelance pieces but I don’t know if comics qualify. On the surface, it would seem like they wouldn’t (because I believe services like LEXIS/NEXIS are text-only). They have a website, copyrightclassaction.com, but it doesn’t seem to answer this vital question.
Does anyone know the answer? I have to submit the form by Sept. 30.
