Judge could make final decision on what evidence to exclude from the fan-film copyright infringement trial as early as this week.
The copyright infringement case against the so-called ‘independent’ Star Trek fan-film will continue without the unsolicited input from the Language Creation Society.
All a jury will have to decide now is if ‘Star Trek: Axanar’ is indeed substantially similar to Star Trek itself. CBS and Paramount seek hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.
A copyright infringement lawsuit involving an ‘independent’ Star Trek fan-film has nothing to do with whether the Klingon language should be public domain, Michael Hinman says.
Michael Hinman takes a quick look back at how one ‘independent’ fan-film changed the face of Trek fan-films worldwide. And not for the better.
Whether or not the federal judge in the case will agree to such a request is yet to be seen.
CBS Studios and Paramount Pictures say neither ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ director J.J. Abrams or ‘Star Trek: Beyond’ director Justin Lin have anything to add. Axanar wants to cut loose one of its own directors.
Both sides in the legal case make one last plea to convince a judge to end the copyright infringement case before it goes to trial next month.
The attorneys also want Axanar to ‘de-classify’ its financial report after the production claimed publicly it was ‘transparent.’
