Amicus Curiae Comic

At Law and the Multiverse we mainly talk about how the law is portrayed in comics.  Well here is a very literal example: an amicus curiae brief / comic filed in the ebook price-fixing case, U.S. v. Apple et al.  The brief was illustrated by Julia Alekseyeva and written by Bob Kohn, who is the co-author of Kohn on Music Licensing and knows a thing or two about copyright law.  We take no position on the case itself or the merits of the brief, but it’s easy to read and very entertaining.  There have been illustrated court filings before (here’s the sad backstory to that one), but this is the first full-blown comic we’ve seen.

Thanks to Len for forwarding the brief to us.
