    ... This is good news, very good news; and shows the need to register copyrights... Next, comes the monetary settlement, can't wait to read about it. The audacity to edit 30 minutes of the film to cover-up infringement, smh.

    Peace In,

    Is it an established fact that she won the copyright case? I can't find any other media sources that testify to that affect which I find strange.

    According to Snopes its false, but I'm certain the OP will return, one way or another... At least that's what I'm waiting for.

    ****..trying to rip the sista off in plain sight. I while ago I was reading how imaginative the Wachowski Brothers were for coming up with the matrix, and how they can't wait to see what they come up with next.

    Many people wouldn't know it but the Underworld concept is his, but they always put that white boy up there that was the co-creator. This brutha IMO has done most of the work for this series but you will be hard press to find his face anywhere except as one of the actors, and not the creators.
