Licensing issues?

I think Cthulhu is Public Domain now. It seems that only limited Copyright (Such as the Game Call of Cthulhu) is active and the mythos is not under any license.

Ah, but in which jurisdictions? S'public domain in Canada, I can guarantee you that.

Probably is in the US as well - it's extraordinarily unlikely all the requisite copyright renewals were filed.

Well Lovecraft was always for people using the Cthulhu cult (as long as they gave source credit) and his executors seemed to follow his will in that.

Well, he wasn't litigious, certainly - it's a matter of what happened to the rights when he died.

Which having spent a brief time checking, indeed looks like it simply lapsed at some point prior to automatic retroactive extensions in the 90s.

As a side note here the the original "The Call of Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft.

If you go to AF to the "staff bannings" thread, you'll see that Miss Meng was a sock puppet of someone else (named in the thread)

After a brief hiatus, I see that the Meng is still around? Or rather... isn't... finally?
