Hello, If a person wrote some stories set in the Hyborean world of Conan, but not about Conan, just mentioning him sometimes or mentioning places or people mentioned in REH Conan stories, would that be a violation of copyright? If so, who owns the REH estate or who would you ask for permission to use REH's hyborean world as a setting, to mention places or his characters? Thanks. Freebooter
What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie? I, who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky. The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing; Rush in and die, dogs - I was a man before I was a king!
