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.
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.
Whether or not the federal judge in the case will agree to such a request is yet to be seen.
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.
