Axanar admits to crossing ‘boundaries acceptable to CBS and Paramount relating to copyright law.’
Judge could make final decision on what evidence to exclude from the fan-film copyright infringement trial as early as this week.
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.
Both sides drop in their final words before a judge decides how and if a copyright lawsuit against the ‘independent’ Star Trek fan-film moves forward.
Both sides in the Star Trek copyright infringement suit want to end the case early in their own favor as new fan-film details emerge.
The attorneys also want Axanar to ‘de-classify’ its financial report after the production claimed publicly it was ‘transparent.’
Multiple filings from defense attorney Erin Ranahan has questioned whether or not CBS and Paramount even own Star Trek.
Lawyers want to hear more from directors as trial date approaches.
