LET ME STEAL YOUR ART WORK and YOUR NAME
Don Martin was a world famous cartoonist who died in 2000. His work
appeared in MAD and CRACKED magazines and in pocketbooks. He had millions
of fans of all ages and there are hundreds of internet sites discussing his art and
his funny sounds. Click on the one appearing above for an interesting and
illustrated look at his life and work.
He made other people rich. But he was only rich in talent. I am his widow
living on social security, and I am trying to keep MAD and DC Comics, who are
owned by AT&T, from stealing his name, trademark and work. How are they
doing this and why should anyone care? Every creative person strives for
recognition. It represents their talent. Whether a writer, painter, musician,
poet, cartoonist, dancer, and so on, they all appreciate recognition. Everyone
knows someone like this. This person may be someone very close or even
If AT&T wins the case I have been fighting all other creative people can
just as easily lose control over their names and work too. My opponents have
been using Don's name on books and magazines all over the world as if it is
their property. They have been putting his name on work he did not create.
That is what I am fighting. I have done the best I can but will soon need the
help of real lawyers. And big companies fight hard and dirty. Law is a
complicated animal and I do not know enough to keep on fighting without
legal help. But I will go on doing the best I can.
If Don loses his name and work countless others will also.
Please don't let this happen. The funds are needed now and through the
next eight to ten months months. I know many people do not like lawyers
but their experience and training helps us. I have no way of knowing
how much or how little it will cost, but anything you send to this account
big or small, will be appreciated.
Funds that are not needed will be contributed to Doctors without
Borders or other worthy charities. You will be helping Don's heritage
and countless other creative people who can just as easily lose control
over their work and names. Please tell others. I know I can, should, and
will win with your help. REMEMBER---ALL CREATIVE PEOPLE WILL
WIN, WHEN I WIN. Don't let the big companies own the arts...
Thank you for your help.
