Online funds crowdsourcing platforms such as KickStarter are an excellent place to highlight a brilliant idea. However, companies such as KickStarter are usually wary of any such projects which may infringe copyrights. Under similar reservations, KickStarter has now cancelled a project about ‘Where the wild things are’ sequel.


Where the wild things are

‘Where the wild things are’ proved to be a very successful book and now, two UK-based illustrators wanted to create a sequel of it, named ‘Back to the wild.’ The new book was to use the same characters, locations and other details as the first book. As a result, the copyright infringement alarms at HarperCollins Publishers went off, being the company that published the original book.

Apparently, even proposing such a project by using characters and names from the original book are copyright infringement, or so HarperCollins Publishers thinks. The company asked KickStarter to respond to their contentions and do away with the project.

Since HarperCollins Publishers does have valid grievances, KickStarter has removed the ‘Back to the wild’ project from its website. The incident shows that when devising projects for crowdsourcing sites such as KickStarter, project curators have to be very diligent in determining that any of the content they are making use of isn’t protected or copyrighted.
