Another successful extortion attempt. 
While some copyright lawsuits go to court, often times the defendant finds it cheaper to settle rather than fight. Here we have another example. In May of this year the Conan Doyle estate sued Miramax, Penguin Random House over the movie Mr Holmes. The movie is based on a ten-year-old novel by Mitch Cullin, A Slight Trick of The Mind, and starred Ian McKellen. The movie was set to be released in July, but the debut was imperiled by the lawsuit an...

My review of Mr. Holmes. What do you think?
"All emotions...were abhorrent to his cold, precise, but admirably balanced mind" [SCAN] When we first encounter Sir Ian McKellen as an aged 93 year-old Sherlock Holmes, he is on a train returning to his home in Sussex afte...

Thanks for the review! I was interested (on several levels) to see "Mr. Holmes" , being both a Sherlockian & a Tolkienite. I loved Ian McKellen as Gandalf, & can't wait to see him as my beloved Sherlock Holmes!

The answer is anything but elementary.
A new transparency report links Rakhat Aliyev, the former son-in-law of Kazakhstan’s dictator, to a famed Baker Street address in London.

Thank God the Conan Doyle Estate, Ltd. allowed the film to be released on the very day it was set to be released all along! We owe them a debt of gratitude. And probably some cash too, so turn our your pockets. #mrholmes   #freemrholmes  
The film, which stars Ian McKellen as the retired sleuth living in coastal England after moving away from London, is based on a novel by Santa Fe-born writer Mitch Cullin. The book, A Slight Trick of the Mind, was adapted for the screenplay.

I've always had respect for Sir Arthur.  His descendants, not so much.  I understand protecting a literary legacy, but holding it hostage to milk it for every cent you can is just plain despicable.

Introduction
Best dressed man in the social media industry.

He has been called "an unstoppable force of nature," "the best corporate social media lead on the planet," and Alan Mulally, the CEO of Ford Motor Company, called him "a visionary."

As principal of Scott Monty Strategies, he counsels brands and agencies on strategy, executive communications, influencer management, the customer experience, and digital initiatives.

Scott spent six years as the global head of social media at Ford Motor Company, where he was a strategic advisor on all social media activities across the company, from blogger relations to marketing support, customer service to internal communications and more. Scott's counsel on social media was sought out by leaders from many facets of Ford's business.

Scott served as Consigliere for crayon and spent a number of years with PJA Advertising + Marketing, a boutique BtoB agency specializing in health sciences & high tech.

In addition to his consulting and agency background, Scott is an active blogger and podcaster. He writes about the intersection of advertising, marketing and PR at The Social Media Marketing Blog and also writes The Baker Street Blog and co-hosts the podcast I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.

Scott received his Master's in Medical Science from Boston University's School of Medicine concurrently with his MBA from BU's Graduate School of Management. He lives in the greater Detroit area with his wife and two young sons, golfs all too infrequently, and has a hidden talent for voice over work.
