  • “Sherlock Holmes” Is Now Officially Off Copyright and Open for Business



    Doyle's heirs should have used the same attorney that Disney does to perpetuate the copyright on Mickey Mouse. Too bad for them.

    Too bad for us, too; there is some simply awful Holmes fiction out there. Pastiches aren't for everyone.

      "What have you been up to Watson?"
      "I've just updated our Facebook profile Holmes and posted that cute video of you playing with a kitten."
      "Great stuff, we should get plenty of likes for that."
      "Oh yes I unfriended Moriarty too."

          Holmes turned to Watson and said "Are you sure?"
          Watson looked into Holmes eyes and replied "I've never been as sure in my whole life."
          Holmes and Watson then signed thier civil partnership and lived in 221b Baker Street for the rest of their lives.

                "Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter."

                Hello Dave. Thanks.

                But was she as lovely as Mrs. Brown's daughter? (heh-heh)

                Cheers.

                      good

                      Hello Robert. Well done.

                      Something tells me you're into something good--or my name's not 'Enery the Eighth.

                      If you don't reply, I'll see it as a kind of hush. (heh-heh)

                      Cheers.

                          "Holmes I want you to meet Dr Langdon Professor of symbology."
                          "Welcome Professor Langdon."
                          "Holmes the symbols I have found only lead to one conclusion. There is a Roman Catholic conspiracy to get rid of the Holy Grail."
                          "What must we do?"
                          "We have to run all around the city running into random churches, looking at stuff and saying something profound. We keep this up all night until the time has almost ran out and then we catch the mastermind."
                          "Oh FFS!"

                            Having Sonny Bono in their pockets didn't hurt either.

                              Since characters can't actually be copyrighted, the Doyle estate's argument seems to have been a bit of a non-starter. I wonder how much money they raked in from people who just figured it was less hassle to pay a "fee"
