Today when doing my regular bloggy reading, I came across some information about our dear friend, Emily the Strange. Whether you like her or not, you should know that according to this blog, she was copied from an earlier book, Nate the Great and the Lost List. So, the people who originally created this character have gotten neither credit for their creation nor any of the big bucks that the creator of Emily the Strange has earned from her merchandise sales AND upcoming movie sales.
What do you think about this? What do you think should happen to the creator of Emily the Strange? How should the original author and illustrator be compensated?
