A performer poses as a Sherlock Holmes human statue at King's Cross Square in London on September 26, 2013Heirs to the literary rights of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have filed an appeal with the US Supreme Court over the likes of none other than Sherlock Holmes himself. Holmes and his loyal assistant Dr. Watson, Doyle characters who appeared for the first time in print in 1887, are in four of his novels and 56 stories published in the United States through 1927. The last 10 have copyright protection until December 31, 2022. “Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were not static but are dynamic literary characters who changed and developed throughout the Sherlock Holmes canon,” Doyle’s heirs are arguing before the US high court.
