Lightnin' Hopkins may finally get his marker

Highlights from the Blog at HOUSTONPRESS.COM

Disney spokesman Jonathan Friedland tells Hair Balls that the company has not had time yet to examine the recently filed lawsuit and therefore cannot comment on Yracheta's claims.

Says Arbuckle, "We've looked into this pretty thoroughly. Nobody's just going to take his script and make it directly into a movie; they're going to try to make it look like they didn't copy it, but it's pretty clear to me that there are a lot of things in there that are so detailed that it's just unlikely that somebody would create a script that's got those same things in it and did not see our script and wasn't copying from it."

Yracheta does not list an exact sum for which he is suing. He claims that the movie has grossed somewhere between $93 million and $135 million, and is seeking the profits made by those who allegedly infringed upon his copyrighted material.
