Creating a Batman Ring, Who Do I Talk To?
My wife and I have been married for 5 years and i'm trying to do something special for hanging by my side through all my military bull-crap. She's really into Batman and I created a custom ring design that implements the Batman Begins symbol which I believe is copyrighted by Warner Bros. I want to have Zales create the ring but obviously they cannot touch it until I get approval from whoever owns the symbol. I've tried talking to both DC comics and Warner Bros but neither have responded. I am not reselling, producing for profit, etc. I just want to make a awesome and personal feel wedding ring that she would love. I need to know who and how to get rights to make this 1 ring; if at all possible.

Can I use footage (film) my husband shot?
Hi, I was making a documentary with my husband, but once we finished we got divorced. He took everything and I was supposed to keep the footage. He then changed his mind and threaten he's gonna sue me if I use the footage for anything. Is it fair to assume that being in front of the camera he already agreed to be part of the documentary? Can I use the footage 1) he's in 2) he's not in, only I'm in, but he shot 3) I shot myself during the trip What's the worst that can happen if I move on with release the movie? Thanks,
