The new portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on Netflix has nothing to do with elemental for the Conan Doyle Estate. The successors of the british writer, creator of the famous detective with pipe and cap, have sued the streaming platform, and the studio Legendary Pictures to violations of copyrights and trademarks because of their next film, Enola Holmes, who focuses on the younger sister of the investigator.
as a reminder, a major part of the works of Conan Doyle enters the public domain – anyone may use Sherlock Holmes as he pleases. However, ten works published between 1923 and 1927, are still protected by copyright, and the heirs of the british writer who died in 1930 cling with all their forces, in order not to see them fly away the goose that lays the golden eggs. In these stories, the detective, usually describes such a machine without emotion, appears more human, respectful and gifted with empathy.

As reported by the specialized site the Hollywood Reporter, the Conan Doyle Estate believes in his complaint that the film from Netflix, set for release in 2020, and in which the character appears in the second knife, in the guise of Henry Cavill, does not have to put in scene the detective with positive emotions. The publishing house Penguin Random House and author Nancy Springer, whose series of books Enola Holmes is adapted by the feature film, are also covered by the complaint.
The heirs of Arthur Conan Doyle, who do not appreciate the adaptations derived from the books, are not at their first court action of its kind. In 2015, they were attacked in the movie Mr. Holmes, who portrayed the detective in the end-of-life and retirement, with Ian McKellen in the title role. An agreement was eventually struck between the descendants of the british novelist and the studio Miramax, which produced the feature-length film. The complaint of the Conan Doyle Estate should not prevent Netflix to distribute her film, worn by the actress Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things).
