With so much money being made by the Hollywood elite it's no wonder people are constantly looking for ways to strike it rich by filing lawsuits against the bigwigs for beaucoup bucks.
Sometimes the case has a kernel of merit, like the lawsuit filed against Summit Entertainment over the Nic Cage film Knowing, which alleges they infringed upon Global Findability's patent on geocoding technology.
This lawsuit may not have paid out for the plaintiff, but it has raised some interesting legal questions such as- can a coding method actually be patented? and how does including the coding method in the movie violate the patent?
However, many cases brought up against entertainment industry professionals are nothing but frivolous from the very beginning, such as the case of disappointed moviegoer versus Drive.
The plaintiff, Sarah Deming, alleges that Drive starring Ryan Gosling was promoted as a film akin to The Fast And The Furious franchise, but when she saw the film she was disappointed by the lack of fastness and furiousness. I wonder if Sarah was similarly disappointed by Mad Max: Fury Road?
