Quote from: Voodoo Magic on Apr 17, 2021, 04:58:11 PMIf the Thomas Brothers win, they'll only have 100% rights of future productions, not pre-existing.- - -"Under the termination provisions, prior "derivative works" "can continue to be" distributed as before. 17 U.S.C. § 203(b)(1). Plaintiffs' recovery of the U.S. copyright to their Screenplay therefore does not prevent Defendants (Disney) or their licensees from continuing to exploit prior derivative works, including the original Predator film and TCFFC's five sequel films."- - -And let's all note for the canon record, that even the Thomas Brothers considers the AvP films as sequels!

Quote from: Proteus on Apr 18, 2021, 12:16:40 AMA friend in the industry (and close to Fox) thinks the best thing for the brothers to do is take a settlement if Disney offers, otherwise they'll have to shop around the rights again if that is what they want to do. Either way, they'll get significant money. If rights revert to them, he assumes the franchise will die off.
Quoteit understandably drove much of the fan community into quite a state of turmoil.
QuoteMost of the distress was due to the uncertainty regarding what would happen to the current Disney era Predator projects in the works, most notably the Dan Trachtenberg directed "Skulls"
