Back in 2012, Stan Lee Media Inc., owner of the Marvel Comic Book characters created by Mr. Lee – such as Spider Man and the X-Men – sued the Walt Disney Company for copyright infringement. Disney owns Marvel Comics, but Stan Lee Media (with which Stan Lee himself is no longer affiliated) claims it owns the copyrights to the actual characters created by Mr. Lee.

Now, after losing several rounds in court, Stan Lee Media is appealing an award of $240,000 in attorneys' fee to Walt Disney Company. It is clear that Walt Disney Company does not need the $240,000, the company simply wanted to punish Stan Lee Media for bring the lawsuit, and send a message to others thinking about doing the same.
