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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Venice, CA – Sharp Electronics obtained an image of artist Mad Steez and one of his iconic paintings and used that image to market and sell its flat screen televisions. When Sharp Electronics was sued for this unlawful use, it claimed that it obtained the image from a film submitted in connection with a contest held by Sharp. In making this claim, it filed a lawsuit against the filmmaker that submitted the project, claiming breach of contract, among other things. On December 17, 2015, the Court granted Doniger / Burroughs’s motion to dismiss these claims.
The filmmaker is represented by Scott Alan Burroughs and David R. Shein at Doniger / Burroughs. For more information, call Grace Garcia at (310) 590-1820.
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.
