Default Re: The Batman copyright question.

If WB doesn't go after any of these for copyright infringement, it's probably because they're not aware of them. My understanding of copyright law is, if a copyright holder deos not actively pursue infringers (no matter how "small-time" they are) when they find them, they can lose the copyright. The hard part is actually finding these crooks.
As far as the trading card/mask deal, it doesn't matter if the mask is free or not, it's still infringement. If there's no permission from WB, then they can't distribute it, period, even if it is free.
