Steampunk Holmes is in The New York Times

Steampunk Holmes is included in a fascinating article by The New York Times about who owns the rights to Sherlock Holmes.
Our good friends and supporters, The Baker Street Babes, also play a large role in the article. 
Noble Beast's owner and manager, Richard Monson-Haefel, gets a great introduction and gives a quote:

"Some say that when it comes to promoting nontraditional Sherlockiana, the estate can be quite open-minded. Richard Monson-Haefel of Noble Beast, the multimedia publisher behind “Steampunk Holmes,” an interactive mash-up based on the public-domain story “The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans,” said he paid a fee to the estate after learning it also asserts trademark protection for the character that, unlike copyright, can be renewed in perpetuity.

“The estate has given us a little boost here and there,” said Mr. Monson-Haefel, whose company displays the estate’s official seal of approval on the project’s Web page. “I’m pretty happy with the situation.”
