Showing up on Baker Street at the end of episode has a huge smile on her face. That’s a smile that doesn’t come from greeting the man who fake said that he loves her. 

 That’s a smile i greet the love of my life everyday with. That’s a smile that appears on my face the minute i see him. 

 That’s a smile that Molly Hooper greets Sherlock with, knowing, that her feeling are returned.

We cannot find any basis in statute or case law for extending a copyright beyond its expiration. When a story falls into the public domain, story elements—including characters covered by the expired copyright—become fair game for follow-on authors.
More important, extending copyright protection is a two- edged sword from the standpoint of inducing creativity, as it would reduce the incentive of subsequent authors to create derivative works (such as new versions of popular fictional characters like Holmes and Watson) by shrinking the public domain.
[If a work enters the public domain on a date stemming from first creation not final improvement the original creator may not be inclined to “improve” the work but later] other artists will have a greater incentive to improve it, or to create other works inspired by it, because they won’t have to pay a license fee to do so provided that the copyright on the original work has expired.

7th Circuit Judge Richard Posner

In other words, the 7th circuit affirmed last December’s ruling that all but the last 10 Holmes stories are now in the public domain, in a ruling that criticizes long copyright terms and praises transformative works. The dicta would be beneficial to inspired secondary creators in cases involving transformative works.

"Behind the clock face of Big Ben [...] I picture two kisses up there and they are equally amazing" look i'm fully on board the ss johnlock and will die when they finally kiss but if you're alluding to the possibility of a jimlock kiss behind the clock face...only dogs would be able to hear the noise that i would make

All diplomacy aside, a kiss for Johnlock would be better perhaps in 221B, cozy and cute and the rest…

But imagine Sherlock and Jim up there. All the world beneath their feet, the kings of London. Supervising the city from above and hopefully that night the Clock Tower wouldn’t be illuminated (blame Jim for this). Them in the dark, with the contrast of millions of lights in the distance from the households of all ordinary people with their boring lives. 

Now, that’s a kiss I’d like to see. 

  • John : We don’t know a thing about each other. I don’t know where we’re meeting, I don’t even know your name.
  • Sherlock : I know you’re an Army doctor, and you've been invalided home from Afghanistan. You've got a brother worried about you, but you won’t go to him for help, because you don’t approve of him, possibly because he’s an alcoholic, more likely because he recently walked out on his wife, and I know your therapist thinks your limp's psychosomatic, quite correctly, I’m afraid. That’s enough to be going on with, don’t you think ? The name is Sherlock Holmes, and the address is 221B baker street. Afternoon.

Dear Miss Adler, thank you for making me a copy of the sex tapes you acquired from Sherlock, they were hilarious. For as good as I've heard John is in bed he seems to be very bored when Sherlock is on top. I'm looking forward to seeing how your tutelage improves dear Sherlock's performance. I suggest emphasizing the fact that John's pleasure should be just as important as his own. On the plus side he has plenty of room to improve. Good luck, Jim Moriarty
