Further to my last blog entry on the subject of ‘Chain Of Title’, it is worth hi-lighting this text from a blog entry I had written in 2015:-
The above refers to an email written after the then current designer, Chris, had left the show. Since ATG had not paid him all his wages, Chris had removed access to all his design work on Dropbox. In the end, ATG agreed to pay Chris some of the money and a deal was struck.
What the above proves beyond doubt is that ATG was in breach of copyright by using material I had contributed to the show. And now that the pilot episode has been reshot using elements of my work, the show remains in breach.
ATG broke the law by not paying me. And now Medinah Company HAS broken the law by using my intellectual property. Any attempt to sell the show by the owners will mean they have broken the law once again. They know this and even if they did not, in the eyes of the law, ignorance is not bliss.
