Shortly after I posted the opinion the following statement from DC & Warner Bros. appeared in my inbox:
DC Comics and Warner Bros. Entertainment are very gratified by the court’s thorough and well-reasoned decision in this matter. The decision validates what DC and Warner Bros. have maintained from the beginning, which is that when they do business with each other, they always strive for – and achieve – fair market value in their transactions. We are very pleased that the court found there was no merit to plaintiffs’ position that the Superman deals were unfair to DC Comics and, by extension, the plaintiffs.
No big surprise here–the judge is always smart when you win. But is that all that the opinion says, or is there more than meets the eye?
Check back soon for more from this fascinating opinion.
