Background

In the Planet Money Podcast entitled "We Buy a Superhero: Origins," the hosts try to get Marvel to sell them the rights to an obscure superhero named "Doorman." In response, I thought, "Hey, I am an attorney who teaches business law classes, couldn't I figure out how to get the intellectual property rights to a superhero?" With this thought, Copyright Infringement Man was born.

This book may be more enjoyable if you first listen to the Planet Money podcast, "We Buy a Superhero: Origins" at https://www.npr.org/transcripts/967425295

At least a glance at the Wikipedia entry for Doorman may also be helpful. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doorman_(comics).

The story talks about intellectual property rights and finding your own superpower. If you're feeling generous, I mention Riverside High School of Milwaukee, and I think it would be fun for them to receive copies to use in their classroom. Maybe your classrooms would enjoy it too.

Please contact me if you know of a middle school or high school classroom that would be interested because I'd love to have it used in a classroom, and the bulk printing prices are really low.

The "§" on Copyright Infringement Man's chest may remind you of a letter on another superhero's chest, but "§" is the symbol for "section" and refers to Section 107 of the Copyright code.
