Submission + - Batman (City) Sues Batman (Hero) Over Name (variety.com)

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "The mayor of Batman, a city in southeastern Turkey, is suing Warner Brothers over the name of the superhero Batman. They believe that WB is using the name without permission, and they want a cut of the royalties from 'The Dark Knight', which collected over a billion dollars in royalties. They have not given any explanation of why they've waited this long to complain given that Batman has been around since 1939, but they have managed to blame the success of the Batman movies for a number of unsolved murders and a high suicide rate among women. It's not clear how they justify that, unless they think Ras al Guhl is somehow involved. They should have taken a cue from that city in Fukui prefecture that's much smarter about how it profits from its name, rather than filing silly lawsuits."
