Estate administrator questions validity of Little Mole licence

Questions have been raised as to whether the granddaughter of Zdeněk Miler, the creator of the popular Little Mole cartoon character, actually owns the copyright on the figure, reported. The news site said that the administrator of the Miler estate, Milena Fischerová, believes Karolína Milerová’s contract to use the rights to the figure is invalid and is having it examined by legal experts. The cartoonist’s descendant currently runs the Little Mole company on the basis of a licence that she says he signed with her prior to his death in 2011. Ms. Milerová, who is in her mid 20s, has refused to make the document public.
