Default Cameron is being sued or Avatar!

Check out the story here

This is unbelievable. I find it weird that this guy was so furious about the 09 theatrical premiere but then he seems to have not done anything between the time he supposedly contacted Cameron's people.

My first thought when reading the headline: "Again"?

My second thought: This man was so mad he sat around for 2 years and then sued. He was just that mad. I mean if someone had stolen the idea for the most successful movie of all time from me, that's what I'd do. I'd wait two years and then sue.

I assume that professional trolling is more complicated than the article explains. IP law does have lots of intricacies.

Doesn't the statue of limitations come in to play on this? Two years really?

Also does this mean I can sue George Lucas for "stealing" ideas like the Hero's Journey or stuff from Kirasowa?

Only if you shot first, which you probably didn't.

AFK trolling.

There have already been various people who have tried, ranging from people with unpublished books to someone who actually made a rip off film (massive box office bomb, barely got any coverage) after hearing Avatar's plot details.

There was the one involving the author who was suing for Cameron ripping off his published book, but I don't know what became of that.

Meh, why not? It's only slightly more ridiculous than life anywhere else.

Maybe this is just me, but I'm a little surprised that The Onion never did an article about James Cameron being sued individually by everyone in the whole world over stealing the idea for Avatar. I would have liked to see that.

At least its not a moon around blue Jupiter eh?

You have to admit the similarities are damn shocking.

Also if anything I would sue Cameron for making a family member commit suicide out of depression for not being able to go to Pandora....to far?

Remember this?

Taiwanese Man Dies After Watching 'Avatar'


Edit: Apparently this is #8. Author Poul Anderson allegedly threatened to but never followed through.
