Venice, CA – the long-standing and hotly-contested battle over the rights to the Toolbox Murders film franchise has taken another step toward completion. Earlier this year, Doniger / Burroughs obtained at trial a verdict of more than $460,000.00 in connection with copyright claims brought in connection with the films. Earlier this week, the Honorable Philip S. Gutierrez rejected the infringers’ motion for a new trial, paving the way for the verdict to be enforced.
Doniger / Burroughs attorneys Stephen M. Doniger and David R. Shein represented the plaintiffs in this matter. For further information, call or email Grace Garcia at (310) 590-1820 and email@example.com
Venice, CA – Doniger / Burroughs, representing the owner of certain cult horror and science fiction films from the 1950s, has resolved a dispute regarding these titles. The dispute arose when unlicensed copies of the films Invasion of the Saucer-Men and The Amazing Colossal Man began appearing in both English- and Italian-language versions for sale through a film distributor. These copies were unlicensed and unauthorized, and Doniger / Burroughs filed a copyright infringement action to address this unlawful distribution. This week the matter settled amicably.
The owner of the films was represented by Scott A. Burroughs and Trevor W. Barrett.
