A suit involving an inventor trying to retain royalty payments for a web slinging glove (shoots silly string actually) after the patent ran out on the toy. Marvel didn’t want to pay royalties. Inventor wanted them to keep coming… Kagan sets out to see that Justice triumphs. 😉
“The parties set no end date for royalties, apparently contemplating that they would continue for as long as kids want to imitate Spider-Man (by doing whatever a spider can),” Kagan wrote, and thousands of nerds across the land suddenly stopped what they were doing and started reading an 18-page Supreme Court decision.
