Press release : Moulinsart SA and Casterman

MOULINSART SA and EDITIONS CASTERMAN were astounded to learn of the decision made by the Court of Appeal at The Hague (Holland) on 26 May 2015. The origin of the case in question is the request made by MOULINSART SA to the Hergé Genootschap association to respect a contract agreed by the association in order to reproduce in its regular publication drawings by Hergé. The Court appears to have fallen into confusion over the “Tintin” rights held respectively by MOULINSART SA and by EDITIONS CASTERMAN.
The contract between EDITIONS CASTERMAN and Hergé specifies that EDITIONS CASTERMAN owns the rights to publish on paper and in all languages The Adventures of Tintin. All other rights including the right to exploit separately extracts from the books and other drawings remain the property of Hergé.
By consequence, only EDITIONS CASTERMAN hold the rights to publish The Adventures of Tintin on paper; only MOULINSART SA may exploit or authorise the reproduction of drawings and extracts from the books, representing Tintin and all other characters from the universe of Hergé.
MOULINSART SA will be following every possible avenue of appeal offered by Dutch law.
