I was just wondering if there were any notable cases on copyright infringements. It's something that artists seem to worry about, though I've never actually heard anything about it. I heard a while ago that Marvel sued City of Heroes because you could make characters that looked similiar to ones in the Marvel Universe, that's about it.
And also... how does it work? Say I have a website with a gallery of my work, and then suddenly in a new Xmen a monster appears that looks exactly like something there. Can I sue them then? Or is there a formal process I must go through first to get the copyright.
