Copyleft Comics: Mimi and Eunice

One of my other hats is as a copyright researcher, so when I ran across this little crossover gem in my RSS feed, I thought I’d share. Mimi & Eunice is a copyleft comic, both in licensing and content. Essentially, rather than completely reserving her copyright, the author has decided to license the content to allow as wide as use as possible while still maintaining credit for her work. The content of the strip pokes fun as the problems with current copyright, trademark, and IP law (as well as religion and the human condition).

Mimi & Eunice is a bit heavy handed at times (and would look nicer with some Previous/Next buttons), but the characters are cute, so I’m willing to forgive them. Plus I can embed the comics here for your entertainment, which is always fun. I found this little sequence an amusing take on a webcomic humor mainstay: the poop joke.

Mimi & Eunice is copyleft(ed) via CC-BY-SA and is drawn by Nina Paley.

    Thanks Amanda! Mimi & Eunice are copyleft, and have a large IP category, but their content is much broader than IP. They talk about religion, relationships, feelings, sex, love, etc.; and there are lots-o-laffs derived from their addictions and compulsions (Mimi is an alcoholic, and Eunice is a compulsive ear-chewer).

      Hi Nina. Thanks for stopping by & expanding on what your comic covers. I have to be honest that I haven’t been able to read the complete archive, but I definately find your take on the human condition interesting.
