Trademark case in USA: Trade mark& Copy right of the Bat Man's car
| The copyrights and trademark of the famous Bat Man and its super Hi-Tech vehicle belongs to DC comics. When Gottham Garrage made the replica of the Bat Man's car for sale, DC comics sued them over trademark and copyright infringement. The judge sided with DC and concluded that the car is a fictional character and , therefore, protected under copyrights. One interesting question from Gottham Garrage is whether this judgment will encourage Ford, Toyota or Ferrari to publish comic books in order to protect their vehicle design.
