Arthur Conan Doyle's estate sues Netflix, claiming Sherlock Holmes' emotions are copyrighted

Post by Mark Fournier »

The lawsuit, filed against Netflix, the film’s production company, Springer and her publisher, alleges that “emotional warmth, respect for women and (Sherlock’s) kindness in relationships” are characteristics that are protected by trademark. 

Sherlock is popularly known as an “aloof and unemotional man” and his personality only started to evolve in stories published after 1923, the lawsuit claims.
