This case involves an alleged intellectual property infringement stemming from a television series release. An author wrote a novel that had received some acclaim from book critics shortly after the time of publication but was otherwise not considered to be widely successful. A streaming service began production of a series by the same name as the novel within a year of the novel’s publication. After the series was released, it became apparent that there were themes and plot developments that appeared to be lifted directly from the novel. An expert in literary and film copyright law was sought to compare the novel and the series in question and opine as to whether the series borrowed themes, characters, and other intellectual property from the author without consent.
