But how do you explain the constant remakes of, say, Dracula or The Three Musketeers or Robin Hood or King Arthur or Snow White. Those have nothing to do with intellectual property or trademarks or "litigious corporations." They're all public domain, but writers and directors and filmmakers keep wanting to reinvent them, over and over again . . . maybe just because somebody woke up one night and thought, "You know, I really, really want to do a radical new version of Moby-Dick!"
