James Cameron sued by British artist

Jul 1 2013, 6:54am CDT | by

New York, July 1 (IANS) Director James Cameron has been charged with a $50 million lawsuit by British artist Roger Dean. Dean has claimed that Cameron has copied his ideas for the 3D blockbuster "Avatar".

New York, July 1 — Director James Cameron has been charged with a $50 million lawsuit by British artist Roger Dean. Dean has claimed that Cameron has copied his ideas for the 3D blockbuster "Avatar".

Dean has accused Cameron of "wilful and deliberate copying, dissemination and exploitation" of his imagery and claims that he "studied and referenced his art in preparation for the film", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

His complaint states: "The similarities of each such work are substantial, continuing, and direct so as to rule out any accidental copying or similarity in scenes common to the genre."

This is one of the latest legal hurdles for Cameron. In 2011, Cameron was hit with a $2.5 billion copyright lawsuit by a sci-fi screenwriter, while another plaintiff also filed copyright infringement papers against the 58-year-old director.

Replacement Thrillers: Last-Minute Movie Changes That Worked

Exeter Chiefs v Ospreys - LV= Cup
While people are quick to call some productions "troubled" when filmmakers are replaced on their way to the screen, not every example of a writer, director or actor being replaced turns out badly. While we’re very sorry to see Edgar Wright leave Ant-Man, we thought we’d try to be optimistic and take a look at some other movie substitutions that worked out for the best.THE LORD OF THE RINGS - LEAD ACTORThe original choice: Stuart TownsendPoor Stu ...

Kasabian - 48:13

OSCAR-JAMES CAMERON
Maximum attitude, minimum threat, this is garbage...You could liken Clash’s relationship with Kasabian’s music to the plot of James Cameron’s Titanic. At first, there was joyous dancing. By album two, we felt exploited. By three, we’d hit the iceberg. By four, we were clinging on for dear life. And now, on album five, is our affair with the band literally dead in the water? ‘48:13’ opens with ‘Shiva’: an ambient minute of uneasy sound bathing which could be a learned nod to t ...
