Winnetou at Intersection

CK - Washington.   Winnetou, a fictional character in Karl May novels, often stood at the intersection of good and evil. Carolin Schosser and Julia Gehrke place him at the intersection of copyright and trademark law. Their article Winnetou'r Return at the Intersection of Copyright and Trademark Law examines a recent German Supreme Court decision that resolves conflicts arising out of expired copyrights and continuing trademark claims. The German facts are similar to those in Dastar Corporation versus Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation decided by the Supreme Court of the United States around the same time, which the authors had examined earlier.
