Is this correct?: If the Superman logo is trademarked in the United States, then I can not legally draw a Superman logo and sell it in the United States.

If I drew the Superman logo somewhere outside of the United States, then you bought it from me somewhere outside of the United States, then you brought it back into the United States, would it be legal for you to possess it in the United States?

If I drew the Superman logo somewhere inside the United States, then gave it to you at no charge, would that be legal?

My wife said to try and sell these sites.

Included: The two domain names, the top hits on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for (without quotes) I hate him, the top hits on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for (without quotes) I hate her, and all rights to the 1,681 posted stories. As a privacy issue, the originally submitted stories containing personal email addresses (some from minors) are not included and will be deleted upon sale.

$1,000 for the whole lot would be silly. $1,000,000 would be perhaps a bit unrealistic. Traffic-wise the domain names are only worth about $5,000 together, but the #1 search engine rankings and the story rights bump that up a bit. There’s also the 12-15 years of time and expense running the sites and my wife not specifying how fast to sell or how much to charge...

Call it $100,000, unless I get multiple offers within 1 week of the first offer. If that happens, then everything goes to the highest bidder. I have no idea if this is a reasonable price, but I will be technically correct (the best kind of correct) in saying that I did try to sell the sites."

9 years doing interviews in the field. Best pen for my work is a Pigma Micron 002 black. You can get them at Michaels and Joannes (craft stores) for about $3 each. If you order them online in bulk, you can get them down to around $1 each. Thinnest line, doesn't run, reliable. The only down side for me was that I wore the writing tip out in about 3 weeks per pen, but that's pages and pages of notes per day.
