MHG returns in July to the San Diego Comic-Con International Convention to participate as a panelist in Michael Lovitz' great program, Comic Book Law School. MHG will appear on the Saturday panel focusing on hot topics in comics and the law. Included in his remarks will be a discussion of the 9th Circuit's surprising reversal of the 2008 summary judgment granted in favor of the heirs of Jerry Siegel, the original writer of the Superman comic books.
The result of a multi-year research effort, MHG's latest law review article, Comics, Courts & Controversy: A Case Study of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund was published last year by the Loyola Los Angeles Entertainment Law Review, Vol 32, #2 (2012). The article has been selected as one of the best entertainment law articles of the year, and is being re-published in the 2013 edition of the Entertainment, Publishing and the Arts Handbook, from Thomson Reuters.
MHG is continuing work on his book, Comic Art, Creativity and the Law for Edward Elgar Publishing.
On June 9, MHG delivered a talk on The Year in Copyright to the San Francisco Intellectual Property Law Association's Annual Seminar, held in Healdsburg, CA.
