Retrieved August 11, After David O. Selznick suggested the project to Cooper, the flurry of legal activity over using the Kong character that followed—Pioneer had become a completely independent company by this time and access to properties that RKO felt were theirs was no longer automatic—gave Cooper pause as he came to realize that he might not have full control over this product of his own imagination after all.
Cooper had assumed his rights were unassailable and was bitterly opposed to the project. In he filed a lawsuit to enjoin distribution of the movie against John Beck, as well as Toho and Universal the film's U.
Cooper's executive assistant, Charles B. FitzSimons, stated that these companies should be negotiating through him and Cooper for such licensed products and not RKO.
In a letter to Robert Bendick, Cooper stated:. My hassle is about King Kong. I created the character long before I came to RKO and have always believed I retained subsequent picture rights and other rights.
Cooper and his legal team offered up various documents to bolster the case that Cooper owned King Kong and had only licensed the character to RKO for two films, rather than selling him outright.
Many people vouched for Cooper's claims, including David O. Selznick, who had written a letter to Mr.
Without these letters, it seemed Cooper's rights were relegated to the Lovelace novelization that he had copyrighted he was able to make a deal for a Bantam Books paperback reprint and a Gold Key comic adaptation of the novel, but that was all that he could do.
Cooper's lawyer had received a letter from John Beck's lawyer, Gordon E. Youngman, that stated:. For the sake of the record, I wish to state that I am not in negotiation with you or Mr.
Cooper or anyone else to define Mr. Cooper's rights in respect of King Kong. His rights are well defined, and they are non-existent, except for certain limited publication rights.
It seems my hassle over King Kong is destined to be a protracted one. They'd make me sorry I ever invented the beast, if I weren't so fond of him!
Makes me feel like Macbeth : "Bloody instructions which being taught return to plague the inventor. The rights over the character did not flare up again until , when Universal Studios and Dino De Laurentiis were fighting over who would be able to do a King Kong remake for release the following year.
During the legal battles that followed, which eventually included RKO countersuing Universal, as well as De Laurentiis filing a lawsuit claiming interference, Colonel Richard Cooper Merian's son and now head of the Cooper estate jumped into the fray.
During the battles, Universal discovered that the copyright of the Lovelace novelization had expired without renewal, thus making the King Kong story a public domain one.
Universal argued that they should be able to make a movie based on the novel without infringing on anyone's copyright because the characters in the story were in the public domain within the context of the public domain story.
In a four-day bench trial in Los Angeles, Judge Manuel Real made the final decision and gave his verdict on November 24, , affirming that the King Kong novelization and serialization were indeed in the public domain, and Universal could make its movie as long as it did not infringe on original elements in the RKO film,  which had not passed into the public domain  Universal postponed their plans to film a King Kong movie, called The Legend of King Kong , for at least 18 months, after cutting a deal with Dino De Laurentiis that included a percentage of box office profits from his remake.
However, on December 6, , Judge Real made a subsequent ruling, which held that all the rights in the name, character, and story of King Kong outside of the original film and its sequel belonged to Merian C.
Cooper's estate. This ruling, which became known as the "Cooper judgment", expressly stated that it would not change the previous ruling that publishing rights of the novel and serialization were in the public domain.
It was a huge victory that affirmed the position Merian C. Cooper had maintained for years. In Judge Real dismissed the claims that were brought forth by RKO and Universal four years earlier and reinstated the Cooper judgement.
In Universal filed a lawsuit against Nintendo , which had created an impish ape character called Donkey Kong in and was reaping huge profits over the video game machines.
Universal claimed that Nintendo was infringing on its copyright because Donkey Kong was a blatant rip-off of King Kong. The courts ruled that trademark was not among the rights Cooper had sold to Universal, indicating that "Cooper plainly did not obtain any trademark rights in his judgment against RKO, since the California district court specifically found that King Kong had no secondary meaning.
First, Universal knew that it did not have trademark rights to King Kong, yet it proceeded to broadly assert such rights anyway.
This amounted to a wanton and reckless disregard of Nintendo's rights. Second, Universal did not stop after it asserted its rights to Nintendo.
It embarked on a deliberate, systematic campaign to coerce all of Nintendo's third party licensees to either stop marketing Donkey Kong products or pay Universal royalties.
Finally, Universal's conduct amounted to an abuse of judicial process, and in that sense caused a longer harm to the public as a whole.
Depending on the commercial results, Universal alternatively argued to the courts, first, that King Kong was a part of the public domain, and then second, that King Kong was not part of the public domain, and that Universal possessed exclusive trademark rights in it.
Universal's assertions in court were based not on any good faith belief in their truth, but on the mistaken belief that it could use the courts to turn a profit.
Because Universal misrepresented their degree of ownership of King Kong claiming they had exclusive trademark rights when they knew that they did not and tried to have it both ways in court regarding the "public domain" claims, the courts ruled that Universal acted in bad faith see Universal City Studios, Inc.
Nintendo Co. They were ordered to pay fines and all of Nintendo's legal costs from the lawsuit. That, along with the fact that the courts ruled that there was simply no likelihood of people confusing Donkey Kong with King Kong,  caused Universal to lose the case and the subsequent appeal.
Since the court case, Universal still retains the majority of the character rights. In they opened a King Kong ride called King Kong Encounter at their Universal Studios Tour theme park in Hollywood which was destroyed in by a backlot fire , and followed it up with the Kongfrontation ride at their Orlando park in which was closed down in due to maintenance issues.
They also finally made a King Kong film of their own, King Kong As noted above, Richard Cooper, through the Merian C. Cooper Estate, retained publishing rights for the content that Judge Real had ruled on December 6, , belonged to Richard Cooper.
In , they licensed a six-issue comic book adaptation of the novelization of the film to Monster Comics , and commissioned an illustrated novel in called Anthony Browne's King Kong.
In , they became involved with a musical stage play based on the story, called King Kong: The Eighth Wonder of the World which premiered in June in Australia   and then on Broadway in November Studios ,  an expanded rewrite of the original Lovelace novelization, Merian C.
Cooper's King Kong, the original novelization's publishing rights are still in the public domain , and various crossovers with other franchises such as Doc Savage , Tarzan  and Planet of the Apes.
RKO whose rights consisted of only the original film and its sequel signed over the North American distribution rights to its film library to Ted Turner in a period spanning to via his company Turner Entertainment.
In , Warner Bros. Family Entertainment released the direct-to-video animated musical film The Mighty Kong , which re-tells the plot of the original film.
Kong , after Legendary Pictures brought the projects from Universal to their company to build up the MonsterVerse.
DDL whose rights were limited to only their remake did a sequel in called King Kong Lives but they still needed Universal's permission to do so.
Toho's interpretation differed greatly from the original in size and abilities. Among kaiju , King Kong was suggested to be among the most powerful in terms of raw physical force, possessing strength and durability that rivaled that of Godzilla.
As one of the few mammal-based kaiju, Kong's most distinctive feature was his intelligence. He demonstrated the ability to learn and adapt to an opponent's fighting style, identify and exploit weaknesses in an enemy, and utilize his environment to stage ambushes and traps.
In King Kong vs. This version of Kong was given the ability to harvest electricity as a weapon and draw strength from electrical voltage.
This version was more similar to the original, where he relied on strength and intelligence to fight and survive.
Elements of King Kong's character remained in the film, reflected in Godzilla's uncharacteristic behavior and attraction to the female character Daiyo.
Toho Studios wanted to remake King Kong vs. Godzilla , which was the most successful of the entire Godzilla series of films, in to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film, as well as to celebrate Godzilla's upcoming 40th anniversary.
However, they were unable to obtain the rights to use Kong, and initially intended to use Mechani-Kong as Godzilla's next adversary. But it was soon learned that even using a mechanical creature who resembled Kong would be just as problematic legally and financially for them.
As a result, the film became Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah , with no further attempts to use Kong in any way. Both Kong and Skull Island were referenced and made multiple appearances in the film Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
King Kong, as well as the series of films featuring him, have been featured many times in popular culture outside of the films themselves, in forms ranging from straight copies to parodies and joke references, and in media from comic books to video games.
The Beatles ' animated film Yellow Submarine includes a scene of the characters opening a door to reveal King Kong abducting a woman from her bed.
It ends with King Homer marrying Marge and eating her father [ citation needed ]. The animated film Chicken Little features a scene parodying King Kong, as Fish out of Water starts stacking magazines thrown in a pile, eventually becoming a model of the Empire State Building and some plane models, as he imitates King Kong in the iconic scene from the original film.
