Stan Lee's Daughter Files Suit Over IP Rights

J.C. Lee, daughter of the late Stan Lee, has filed a new lawsuit against POW! Entertainment alleging that business executives took advantage of her father’s declining health to gain control of his intellectual property in order to sell the rights to Chinese holding company, Camsing International, Gizmodo reports. This suit revives a previous lawsuit filed in 2018 on Lee’s behalf which claimed that POW! was trying to steal and profit from Stan Lee’s identity. He claimed that at the time of the sale to Camsing, he was told he was given a non-exclusive licensing agreement with POW!, which was not the case. However, the suit was dropped two months later. This new lawsuit seeks damages, claim name and likeness rights as well as domain names and websites.
