DC Insists Fables Comic Book Series Is Not in the Public Domain Despite Creator's Claims
DC has issued an official statement in response to Bill Willingham's announcement that he has put his hit comic series Fables into the public domain, stating that the company "reserves all rights" to the property.
In a statement shared with IGN, DC has disputed Willingham's claims about Fables being in the public domain, asserting that is not the case and the company will take any "action" it deems necessary against the infringement of the property as DC retains ownership over the beloved fantasy series and its characters.
"The Fables comic books and graphic novels published by DC, and the storylines, characters, and elements therein, are owned by DC and protected under the copyright laws of the United States and throughout the world in accordance with applicable law and are not in the public domain," the statement reads. "DC reserves all rights and will take such action as DC deems necessary or appropriate to protect its intellectual property rights."
