A person I know has a webcomic idea that I really, really like. I would like to run with it but he's copyrighted the name/comic. He's made a grand total of 5 over the last 3 years.
I want to buy the idea from him but he wants $500.
I could change a few things and just take it (with only a slight change to font, title and things like that) and make it copyright-proof, but I'd feel "skeevy" doing that.
So I'm asking because I just don't know: Is $500 worth it, too much or not enough?
He's afraid I'll turn it into the next Garfield or something and he'll be out on his ass. Thoughts?
