  • Well done Mr. Ainsworth - all credit to you.
    Hollywood's greed knows no bounds - they'd bleed everyone and everything dry to fill their own pockets.
    George Lucas - SHAME ON YOU !!!

  • I think it's fair enough that this guy beat Lucas really. After all, it means that LucasArts controlled every aspect of profit from the movies for 15 full years, a good stretch really. I think asking for a 70 year ruling on it as a piece of art is a cynical ploy really, and I can see why Jackson, Spielberg and the others all jumped on board. They are trying to protect their incomes, which are already astronomical.

  • "However, Mayer Brown partner Mark Prinsley claims it was a “surprise decision” that will result in a tide of copyright litigation in English courts.
    He says: “This judgment means that the English courts can now be used to sort out claims for infringement of copyright in foreign countries simply because the defendant is resident in the UK.”"
    Well, duh. Welcome to conflict of laws, Mr Prinsley.

  • Schoolboy error Mr Solicitor for George Lucas. You really think their lordships in the Supreme Court are going to listen to New Boy on the Block who earnt millions whilst they were busy climbing the judicial ladder? I bet they were licking their lips waiting to teach him a lesson! Should have chosen someone else
