This case involves a freelance screenwriter who attended a film festival in the hopes of selling a script he had been working on. The screenwriter networked with a producer who seemed very interested in reading the script. Following the event, the producer requested to read the script in full. The screenwriter met with the producer to exchange the script. After reading the script, the producer informed the screenwriter she had elected not to move forward with the script. The following year, the producer released a film with a plot line nearly identical to that of the screenwriter’s original script without the writer’s knowledge or authorization. It was alleged that the producer plagiarized the screenwriter’s script. An expert in copyright laws with particular experience in the entertainment industry was sought to determine if the film was substantially similar to the screenwriter’s original script.
