Paramount is being sued

For copyright infringement

On “Maverick”

_________________________________________________

As Top Gun: Maverick pass Doctor Strange 2 become the highest grossing movie in the United States this year, the heirs of the author of the article that inspired the original 1986 Tom Cruise film were sued for copyright infringement.

As NPR reported,

In 1983, Ehud Yonay wrote an article for California magazine titled “Top Guns”, a character-driven story of two ambitious Navy fighter pilots. Paramount Pictures bought the film rights and three years later, in 1986, “Top Gun” was released. Now Yonay’s family says they own the copyright to the story and that Paramount is infringing it.

As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978, copyright protection lasts the life of the author plus another 70 years. Thus, the heirs of the author, as well as the original author, can claim infringement and seek royalties for the use of copyrighted material.

Yonay passed away in 2012, and the claim is made by his widow and son. They filed a notice in 2018 claiming copyright to the article that was sold to Paramount, and it took effect in 2020.

As Variety Remarks,

“Top Gun: Maverick” went into production in May 2018 and was originally slated to be released in July 2019. The film was delayed for a year, to June 2020, to allow more time to work on the flight sequences, then was delayed for another two years due to the pandemic. The lawsuit argues that the film was not actually completed until May 2021, more than a year after the termination notice went into effect.

The case will involve several issues, including the little-known doctrine of copyright reversion or termination.

Under 17 USC § 203(a)(3),

In the case of any work other than a work made on behalf of others, the exclusive or non-exclusive grant of transfer or license of copyright or any right under a copyright author, executed by the author on or after January 1, 1978, other than by will, is subject to termination under the following conditions:

Termination of the grant may take place at any time during a period of five years beginning after thirty-five years from the date of execution of the grant; or, if the grant relates to the right of publication of the work, the period begins after thirty-five years from the date of publication of the work under the grant or after forty years from the date the grant is executed, whichever term ends first.

A major issue is whether the new Superior gun film really infringes the copyright of the author in the article, which was factual.

As TechDirt points out,

You cannot copyright facts. And most movies based on magazine articles don’t copy any of the copyrighted prose of the article. And so “film rights” are really just a kind of insurance policy. It tends to do two things: (1) keep the author of the original article from saying how unfair this whole thing is, and (2) maybe, but not always, get the writer to at least help a little about the history of the film. to make sure it makes sense. And that’s all. There’s not a whole lot of actual “rights” involved, as movies rarely have much to do with actual copyrighted material.

And, indeed, that seems to be the case with the “Top Guns” story, which was not about Maverick and Goose, but as the complaint itself points out, two real pilots with entirely different nicknames.

According to NRP,

Paramount said, in quotes, “these claims are baseless, and we will vigorously defend ourselves.” The studio also said in response to a cease and desist letter sent by the family that “Top Gun: Maverick” is obviously not derived from the magazine’s story and that the film was sufficiently completed before the change. of copyright. The Yonays dispute both of these allegations. Which of these arguments will fly is now up to the court.

Just like the haiku above, we like to keep our posts short and sweet. I hope you have found this brief information useful.

Jennifer Lopez cried after a magazine article called her a ‘criminally underrated performer’ https://didgeridoomagazin.com/jennifer-lopez-cried-after-a-magazine-article-called-her-a-criminally-underrated-performer/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 22:27:00 +0000 https://didgeridoomagazin.com/jennifer-lopez-cried-after-a-magazine-article-called-her-a-criminally-underrated-performer/ Jennifer Lopez once cried when she was described as a “criminally underrated performer” in Charm.

  • Jennifer Lopez once cried when she was described as a “criminally underrated performer” in Charm.
  • It took him more than a decade to earn a second Golden Globe nomination, for playing Ramona in “Hustlers.”

Jennifer Lopez got visibly emotional read a Glamorous article praising her performance in the movie 2019 “Hustlers” in a scene presented in his netflix documentary “Halftime,” which premiered on the streamer on Tuesday.

Lopez played Ramona in the film, a model for a group of exotic dancers who orchestrated a scheme to rip off the wealthy patrons of the strip club where they worked with millions of dollars. The plot is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler titled “The Hustlers at Scores”, published in New York Magazine.

“Most of the praise for ‘Hustlers’ is dedicated to Jennifer Lopez, who leads the film as lead Ramona,” Lopez reads directly from Glamour. “In fact, some critics say she could be up for her first Oscar.”

“Honestly, it’s exciting to see a performer criminally underrated…” the “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” singer continued, pausing to feel the impact of the words and crying when they hit her. “…getting its due from the prestige film releases.”

It’s a quick but powerful “half-time” moment, especially because throughout the film, Lopez has spoken about how the negative reviews of her talent affect her emotionally.

“I just have very low self-esteem“admitted the star about 25 minutes into the film. “I really believed a lot of what they said, which is that I was no good. That I wasn’t a good singer, I wasn’t a good actress, I wasn’t a good dancer. I was good for nothing. I didn’t even belong here. Why wouldn’t I go?”

Lopez went on to say that she felt like she was in a “really abusive dysfunctional relationship” with the media.

The Latina triple threat was first nominated for a Golden Globe in 1998 for her leading role as Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla Pérez in the filmSelena.” Quintanilla Pérez was murdered by her friend and former fan club manager on March 31, 1995, over a dispute over money.

In “Halftime,” Lopez said she was told she wouldn’t win the Golden Globe for “Selenabut said she was just happy to be nominated at the time. It took over a decade before she was again nominated for “Hustlers”, and she never received an Oscar nomination.

“Halftime” followed Lopez throughout awards season and captured her disappointment when she failed to win the Golden Globe and failed to earn the Oscar nomination for “Hustlers.”

“I really thought I had a chance,” she said around 55:20 into the film.

“I felt like I let everyone down,” she said, referring to the team of people who have worked for her for decades. “They wanted it so badly. For me, for them. I mean, it’s also a validation of all the work they do.”

Later in the film, Lopez told a friend that she had dreamed of being nominated for an Oscar, but woke up and realized she hadn’t understood it. She told her friend, who was angry because of her, don’t let the snub bother her.

“Halftime” is available to stream on Netflix now.

Advanced container technologies (OTC: ACTX), the exclusive U.S. distributor of self-contained, automated indoor “micro-farms” called GrowPods, and related equipment and supplies, were featured in an article published in Borgen magazine. The article, titled “How GrowPods Contribute to Global Food Security”, notes that ACTX’s GrowPods “have the potential to help achieve global food security”. Noting that the consequences of global food insecurity are enormous, the article reports that Advanced Container Technologies and the innovative GrowPods can help solve the problem of global food shortages. Because modular hydroponic farms can be located anywhere and provide an easy and accessible way to grow crops, GrowPods are a viable solution. The article also noted that the GrowPods eliminate pest and disease problems. “Locusts and other insects ravage crops, destroying entire fields in the blink of an eye,” the article says, noting that pods can also help prevent nutrition. “Plants can pick up diseases in a number of environments because the journey from field to consumer is long. . . . Container farms work equally well in rural and urban settings.

We would like to thank Heidi Overson, Our Wisconsin Magazine and the Westby Syttende Mai Committee for a special celebration on May 14th and 15th!

Heidi took the time to write an article about our mom, Bertha Johnson. Our Wisconsin printed it and shared our Rommegrot Queen with its readers in its April/May issue. And the Syttende Mai committee helped publicize this fundraiser. Bertha has been preparing this special recipe to share with festival-goers for almost 30 years now. Many people don’t realize that this is a fundraiser, with all proceeds going to the Syttende Mai committee.

Thanks to this article, many new people have tried rommegrot for the first time! Most of them were able to listen to Bertha tell them how to garnish their cup. Whether you like it with brown sugar and cinnamon like she does, or add white sugar, plenty of laughs were shared and rommegrot enjoyed. A woman came over with a copy of the item and said she just had to try it! A young couple from Arcadia said the same thing. After enjoying their cups; they brought home a gallon to share. Before leaving, they posed for a photo with our Queen Rommegrot.

People also read…

Thank you to all and to the participants of the festival!

Disney Officially Outlines Star Wars TV Plan in New Magazine Article https://didgeridoomagazin.com/disney-officially-outlines-star-wars-tv-plan-in-new-magazine-article/ Tue, 17 May 2022 12:20:00 +0000 https://didgeridoomagazin.com/disney-officially-outlines-star-wars-tv-plan-in-new-magazine-article/ Disney describes an official star wars TV plan in a new magazine article.

Disney describes an official star wars TV plan in a new magazine article. When the Mouse House acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, they immediately began working on a new star wars slate of films, producing the Skywalker Saga sequel trilogy and two spin-off feature films. Following the release of 2019 Star Wars: The Rise of SkywalkerDisney put the star wars pause movies and change speed for TV. Disney+ has become the home of these star wars series, including The Mandalorian, Boba Fett’s Bookand this month Obi Wan Kenobi.

Lucasfilm has a number of other shows in various stages of development. In addition to The Mandalorian season 3, the studio is also working on A thug prequel Andor, mandalorian spin off Ahsokaand all the High Republic The Acolyte. Typically, official details for these series are hard to come by, as Lucasfilm and their creators keep things under wraps. But now there seems to be a solid roadmap in place for when audiences will be able to see these projects.

Related: What Ahsoka Meant When She Told Luke He Looked So Much Like Anakin

in a tuft vanity lounge cover Star Wars’ future on television, information regarding release windows has been shared. After Obi Wan Kenobi premieres at the end of May, Andor will follow suit at an undetermined date this summer. The Mandalorian season 3 begins in late 2022 or early 2023. Ahsoka comes out in 2023, while The Acolyte is said to be “a little further.” There is also another series in development under the working title Grammar Rodeowhich is defined after Return of the Jedi and is described as Star Wars’ take charge “Amblin’s Coming of Age Adventure Films”. It is created by Jon Watts.


Cassian Andor on Jedha

These updates align with previous reports on the shows’ possible release dates. Andor was said to be released in August, while word was The Mandalorian season 3 would arrive at the end of 2022 (possibly during the holidays). Ahsoka just started filming, so a 2023 premiere for this show makes sense. There is still a lot of work to do there. It will be interesting to see what details (such as exact release dates) are revealed at Star Wars Celebration next week. The convention features a Lucasfilm Studio Showcase panel featuring live appearances from filmmakers, so it looks like there will be more updates (and maybe even footage) during the event. There should at least be a first look Andor if this series arrives this summer.

The absence of an estimated window for The Acolyte That could mean it won’t arrive until 2024. However, this show has progressed with Amandla Stenberg playing the lead role and calling in other characters. Depending on how things go, The Acolyte could appear at the end of 2023 (all scripts are written). Maybe some time at Celebration will be spent on The Acolyte, bringing viewers up to speed on the High Republic era. As for Grammar Rodeothe fact that it doesn’t have an official title indicates how far away it is, but it should be interesting to see this Spider-Man: No Coming Home director Watts came up with. The MCUs Spider Man the movies have been praised for being heartfelt and fun coming-of-age stories for young Peter Parker, so maybe he can work that magic with star wars.

Keeping the students playing music makes Jamie Ruetz happy. It repairs, sells, and rents violin-type instruments to support school orchestra programs in Sarasota-Manatee. “I work with student families to find a financial solution that works for them if they want to own an instrument,” explains Ruetz. “The school system is doing a good job of getting the instruments into the hands of the students in the schools themselves.” Ruetz plays saxophone, double bass, banjo and electric guitar, and has performed with the Sarasota Pops Orchestra and Strings Con Brio. He went to college for mechanical engineering and initially pursued a career as an engineer in the automotive industry. He embarked on his current business venture in 2014 when it became clear that the demand for this type of work exceeded his expectations.

“I discovered that there was a need for this type of service in our region and I sought training to fill this need. What started as a moonlighting business quickly turned into a full-time business, and I quit my day job to start this business,” says Ruetz, adding that he also works with private clients outside of the school system. “Seven years later, the business is thriving and I have plans for future expansion.” Ruetz also designs, manufactures and sells tools for other professionals in its sector. This part of his business has a global reach through an established distribution network, and the Triton brand has become well known in the violin making market.

“The most rewarding part of this job is that I help students stay interested in music, albeit mostly without their knowledge,” says Ruetz. “This requires regular maintenance and proper configuration of the instruments. The easier an instrument is to play, the more likely the student will stick to playing music – or so I like to think.

The New Yorker, one of the most prestigious publications in the United States, recently turned its attention to the controversial proposed vertical launch facility which would be located on private property in Powell Township near Lake Superior.

The lengthy article was written by David Rompf, whose articles and essays have appeared in many notable publications such as The New York Times and Newsweek. Rompf knows the Haute Péninsule well, having been born in L’Anse.

The plan for the facility, which is part of the Michigan Launch Initiative, was announced in 2020. It surprised a few people, with KI Sawyer – instead of the pristine Granot Loma site – having been discussed as the location of the facility. . .

The spaceport plan comes from the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association. The Powell Township site, if built, would be part of the spaceport which would include a horizontal launch site at Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport in the downstate, with operations for both sites being taken supported by a command and control center in Chippewa County.

The vertical launch site was upsetting enough for some that they formed a group, Citizens for a Safe & Clean Lake Superior. This organization has followed the issue closely.

The Federal Aviation Administration’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation administers spaceport operator licenses. However, as it stands, the fate of the project is in the hands of the Powell Township government, which is expected to rezone the property to industrial.

The CSCLS is now focused on raising awareness of the issue, and certainly, the New Yorker article, which has been repeatedly shared on Facebook, has contributed to this goal, regardless of an individual’s camp.

It was a well-balanced play, covering both sides of the issue, with the launch promoters saying they would be stewards of the area and engage the community once work begins on the site. However, the article also pointed out that others are concerned about the possible consequences on the environment.

CSCLS Chairman Dennis Ferraro told the Mining Journal that the proposed location in Powell Township includes wetlands and overlies the fragile Jacobsville Sandstone.

He also expressed concerns about the sound of rockets, for example, accompanying people trying to peacefully kayak on Lake Superior.

The economics of installation are also troubling to some people.

The article references a report, commissioned by MAMA and written by the nonprofit research institute IQM, which states that “the annual revenue generated by a launch rate of one rocket launch per week in Michigan would have the same revenue impact in the state, equal to the annual revenue of two additional fast food chains.

With such a complicated and polarizing issue, it’s wonderful that The New Yorker has brought it to light, raising awareness not only among local residents, but also people across the country and perhaps the world.

The CSCLS is now focused on raising awareness of the issue, and certainly, the New Yorker article, which has been repeatedly shared on Facebook, has contributed to this goal, regardless of an individual’s camp.

It was a well-balanced piece, covering both sides of the issue, with the launch promoters saying they would be stewards of the area and engage the community once work begins on the site. However, the article also pointed out that others are concerned about the possible consequences on the environment.

CSCLS President Dennis Ferraro told the Mining Journal that the proposed location in Powell Township includes wetlands and overlies the fragile Jacobsville Sandstone.

He also expressed concerns about the sound of rockets, for example, accompanying people trying to peacefully kayak on Lake Superior.

The economics of installation are also troubling to some people.

The article refers to a report, commissioned by MAMA and written by the non-profit research institute IQM, which states “The annual revenue generated by a launch rate of one rocket launch per week in Michigan would have the same revenue impact in the state, equal to the annual revenue of two additional fast food chains.”

With such a complicated and polarizing issue, it’s wonderful that The New Yorker has brought it to light, raising awareness not only among local residents, but also people across the country and perhaps the world.
