Surrealist, you might want to avoid the thread that this topic was already covered in, a few weeks back. I'm sure it can still be found if you wanted to search it out, but there were more than a few people on there that didn't support Dean!

To be honest, I was simply glad to see someone trying to stick it to that arrogant hack Cameron!

Whether Dean's case has any weight is tough to tell. However scifi author Harlan Ellison successfully sued Cameron over Terminator's similarities to his Outer Limits episodes from the 60s.

I've said all alone, from the first day ... that James Cameron pleasurized Roger Dean, and never once reached out to him to help create the movie ... and for that I lost all respect for James, and refuse to see the film ...  I mean look at "Roger Dean's Views" ... and even the characters were taken from the book, almost.
 
Kind of a bummer, a film I really like was made by Cameron (The Abbyss) and now I can't help think that he is just a rip off artist anyway ... and a b*****d when it comes to ripping people off! He will probably get ripped senseless by the lawyers and judge if he continues his greed posture!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Even at that, he's still not as big a thief as that f**king tarantino
 
Agreed.
 
However, Tarantino, did make a small deal with Godard, Truffaut and at least Akira Kurosawa ... and it was to release their films, and I believe Quentin's company is still releasing the videos of many of their films.  The problem is ... is, no one here has ever seen "Weekend", or "2 or 3 things I know about her", or many other films that had the camera movements and the jokes that were ripped off verbatim ... Pulp Crap was a card board copy of the real thing! It just has a budget, something that Godard and Truffaut never had!
 
What I don't know is how much they are getting paid ... Kurosawa's family is not doing great, but they don't seem to be lacking. Truffaut's family I don't know. Godard made an off remark in one festival, that the day he gets a dollar he will be dead!
 
Cameron represents a lot of what is part of the greed nation that came out of the mid 70's ... rip off as many people with advertising as possible and go to the bank and then smile to everyone that greed is good! And his movies are not that great, although I like "The Abyss".
