Sophia Stewart Wins Biggest Copyright Infringement Suit in the History of Hollywood
So, you thought the The Matrix was 100% written by the Wachowski Brothers, right? Well, that’s not the case. To my surprise this morning I was looking at Ann Ruckert’s music biz blog when I found this disheartening entry to say the least, specially being the huge fan of the Matrix that I am, the Wachowski Brothers did not write the Matrix on their own. Here is an excerpt from Ann Ruckert’s blog:
After many years of fighting, Sophia Stewart, the African American author of The Matrix, will finally receive her due from a movie industry that infringed on the copyright of her work.
A six-year dispute has ended involving Stewart, who took on the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers for using parts of her manuscript, The Third Eye in The Matrix I, II and III, as well as The Terminator and its sequels.
