From the Michigan Law Review via Google Books:
and the same case, in more detail, from The Northeastern Reporter via Google Books:

I'm wondering why the courts specifically ordered Hearst not to do any copy of Mutt and Jeff, but there were multiple copies of The Katz Kids that seemed safe from lawyers.
