However, given the way Warner and DC have treated Siegel and Schuster over the years (Neil Adams fought tooth and nail back in the 70's to get them both their "whopping" $20,000 a year annuity), I can't say I'm not pleased that Warner and/or DC may be shelling out even more cash for taking advantage of a couple of kids.I don't really have a lot of background knowledge in intellectual property law, but I do plan on doing some research, as this whole thing just sounds...well, odd.
