Småaktiga amerikaner har nu börjat jaga stackars oskyldiga Kalle & Hobbe-fans som har bilder på Kalle & Hobbe på sin hemsida.

Detta är nämligen olagligt. Kalle & Hobbe är skyddade med copyright, och därför blir fansen numera tvingade att plocka bort Kalle & Hobbe-bilderna från sina hemsidor.

Följande mejl skickades till Kuai p.g.a. en användares hemsida:

Dear Sir,

This letter is in reference to the following material:

I'm writing as the Webmaster for Universal Press Syndicate. Universal is
the company that markets Calvin & Hobbes to Newspapers and publishes the
comic strips in books. We are responsible for protecting Bill Watterson's
(the artist who creates Calvin and Hobbes) copyright. Your self or others
using your webserver are posting Mr. Watterson's art without his approval
in direct violation of copyright law. Mr. Watterson is appreciative of his
many fans but feels that he can not permit his art to used with out his
permission. This is a life's work and his lively hood and we hope that you
would please respect his wishes. If you want to view Calvin and Hobbes
on-line in the future please link to the official
home of Calvin and Hobbes on the internet.

If you have created an animation or other cool web stuff for Calvin and
Hobbes please submit your work. If we post it we will give you credit and
send you a free Calvin and Hobbes book.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
