Most creative folks share your distate of lawyers, but don't worry
about this particular concern - such lawsuits are rarely successful, as
evidenced recently by the George Lucas/Ewoks thing, and one of the
challenges to Michael Jackson regarding a song idea. For example,
alt.tv.animaniacs has many, many lurkers from Warner Bros. - I talk to a
couple, it hasn't been a problem.
