Free Batman Motion Comic [GEOGRAPHICALLY RESTRICTED]

I just discovered that a Batman comic I wrote for Batman Black & White, Vol. 1, several years ago has been made into a "motion comic" by DC/Time Warner. It's up for free on WB's page. Illustrated by Kevin Nowlan.

I'm sure it will be on the pirate circuit by now for all us smelly foreigners who aren't good enough to read it.

Confirmed, already circulating at the big sharing sites (not that I care about comic books, but I know someone who likes them).

Do they actually think they can put geographic restrictions on the internet and people won't circumvent those restrictions? They tried to do it with Hulu, and all I have to do is block a few ports and install a Firefox add-on to get at that content. Bunch of idiots.

Perhaps they only have US distribution rights for it?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Time Warner can do whatever they want with it.

I've got the book in Spanish. I admit I bought the B&W books with high expectations, but only some of the stories really picked my interest. Yours was one of them.

I adhere to the fist shaking, because I would have loved to see it in its original version.

BTW, the fact that you "just discovered" it should tell us something about relationships between editors and content creators...

With the new DC Comics App for iPad (available from iTunes US Store - but 'worldwide' store for those who know they way around iTunes), about 6 Batman Black & White comics are in the freebie section, along with a lot of other titles.
For free comics, there are several Apps for iPad offering first issue or something the like. And DC/Warner motion comics usually pops out on iTunes freely from time to time. But this one's not free there at iTunes.
