I don't think it extends to fictional beings. aside from that, there'll
probably be some trouble producing a court-acceptable document with the
copyright transfer. plus: THAT would definitely be an expired copyright.

tiny rant: how can stuff like DNA be anything but public domain?
spending 5 thoughts on the subject makes clear that any copyright,
trademark or patent on HUMAN DNA is just unbelievable stupid and
against all what those rights stand for. now we may talk about
engineered DNA, but human is just so obvious - nobody created or 
invented it, so how can anyone claim patent or copyright protection?
the act of FINDING is NOT covered by any of those. I mean, columbus
didn't get a patent on america, did he?
