I have only ever heard a *copyright* claimed by Kirk. That only applies
to a *particular* instantiation (image). Please do not throw legal confusion
into the matter by pretending that we need to kow tow to Kirk when we
make a completely unrelated (but similar looking) daemon figure. He owns
the image, not the likeness.
Also, I thought that he specifically disavowed the "beastie" name, saying
that the guy whose image he holds under copyright never had a name.
These are just two correctional factoids for the thread.
