"Ken Penders, you have been accused of monopolization of content not authored by you and manipulating legal restrictions by a jury of your peers. How do you plead?"
This is something I can only express by way of art. I realize making a petition will do me know good, and there would not be enough support. But what I display here is what I'd suggest should happen.
Ken Penders should be taken before the Supreme Court of the United States and stripped of the ownership of the characters for whom the likeness he did not originally create. These rights should be placed into the hands of both SEGA and Ian Flynn, to perpetuate the continuation of their existence and use.
I cannot cause this to happen, but what I can do is put the idea out here and leave it up to you, the people to decide.
