There have been a couple of interesting copyright cases in the news recently. The first case involves Teller from the magic duo Penn and Teller and his decision to sue a man for stealing one of his magic tricks. Unfortunately, the defendant in the case has disappeared, so there’s no telling how Teller’s case will play out. Chris Jones wrote a fascinating piece on this for Esquire.

The second case concerns the long-standing battle over the rights to Superman. A federal court has ruled that DC Comcis and Warner Bros. may retain their rights and royalties. A brief outline of the case by Michael Cavna was recently published in The Washington Post
