    Quote:
    Except REH was a Yank, so the UK only granted protection as long as the US did. And the early stories have been public domain in the US for decades.



    Quote:
    These stories were bound by the 1909 Copyright Act, which required explicit statement in the work establishing copyright, and later required the owner to file for renewal. This wasn't done.


Is there some website that goes into detail about the rights to Howard's characters? Robert's father Isaac Howard, Cabinet Holdings, Paradox Entertainment Inc, and Stan Lee Media Inc are just a few of the entities that have had the rights.
