Fox just sued a wanna-be screenwriter, single mother, day-job woman who posted scripts on her blog for “educati0onal purposes”. They want close to $12 million bucks from her in damages. If you’d like to see the actual Complaint, download the pdf here.

  1. Unbelievable! So this poor woman who made no money from posting the script is being sued for 12M! And no, she probably won’t pay that but what about the stress and legal fees. Really Hollywood? Are you going the way of the music industry? Just piss off your customers. If you were smart you would advertise on her blog with a link to the movie trailer or DVD. Then you would make money rather than offending your customers and fans.

    I don’t get industries that thrive on promotion, (in this case, free promotion) want to go out of their way to punish people who are fans.

    And finally, what does the screenwriter, or hollywood fear. We are going to download the script and make the exact same movie? I don’t get it.

  4. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
