Nothing for me. Just trying to answer BA's question of why WB's going after this garage and not dealing with others.

As Anita pointed out with her Disney example, they'll go after you if they're making their own "official" versions and you're making a good amount of profit. So, now we know it's come to WB's knowledge due to some other garage that paid licensing fees and sells their replicas at a higher price.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
