Comment: Moore expected the rights back long ago (Score 4, Interesting) 130

To everyone who sees nothing wrong with this, please remember the DC was supposed to return the rights to Watchmen back to Moore when the collection went out of print. Moore was the victim of the story's popularity, though, as it was one of the first graphic novels to sell enough to remain in print for a long time. I imaging Warner and DC have no intention of allowing it to be out of print at all now, following the letter of the contact but violating the spirit of the agreement.

Speaking as someone who worked for Borders for several years and continued to have my store be a big part of my life, any good Borders employee would be happy to read your story. We never minded anyone reading stacks of books, even taking notes, as long as they put their own books away. If they'd gone on providing the selection and taking care of the needs of customers like you, they wouldn't be in this situation and costing several of my friends their jobs. Thank you for sharing. Your story actually made me happier today.

The only difference between a car salesman and a computer salesman is that the car salesman knows he's lying.
