Have you always wanted to play a genius heroin addict detective who dabbles in sassiness and torturing the violin while being high?
Well, grab your iPhone and detective hat, and let’s go.
Now is the time to start making the next Sherlock Holmes movie because Sherlock Holmes is copyright free and in the public domain in the US.
It will be more exciting than ever to see what will happen because the creator economy is at full speed.
AI is helping anyone write stories, design images, and edit videos. There are numerous easy-to-access distribution channels out there.
We wouldn’t be surprised if there was soon gonna be a Sherlock Holmes TikTok show.
There will definitely be newsletters, like for Moby Dick or an buffet of various creations like happened to the Great Gatsby.
We also bet that fans will experiment more and use this advantage than the usual production companies.
And some of these creations will be bought off of these fans. Not to mention, the fan club for Sherlock is huge, with over 900 Sherlock Holmes societies around the world.
We’d recommend some generative AI tools to tap into that news and turn it into a marketing stunt: "make your own Sherlock Holmes mystery."
Btw, do you know what copyright law expires next year… Mickey Mouse.
Predicting all of that, but at a 10x level.
So here’s a business idea. Become the umbrella organization for all of those creators.
Sort of like management - publisher - the governing body.
Help them with legal issues, make deals with other creators-publishers, experiment with distribution, marketing, and become the (co-)publisher of their material.
Currently, this is done by Arthur Conan Doyle's heirs at the Conan Doyle foundation, but their world is about to be turned upside down.
And haggling with them is exactly the help all those creators will need.
