MGM Denies Trying to 'Scare Off' Universal With James Bond Lawsuit
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.27.2014

MGM has denied attempting that they are trying to scare away competition by suing Universal Studios for allegedly stealing ideas from the James Bond franchise. THR reports that MGM-Danjaq have sued Universal Studios over the latter's new film Section 6, claiming that it copies ideas from the Bond franchise and "directly infringes" on their copyright.

Universal had tried to have the lawsuit dismissed, claiming that MGM was just trying to scare away any rivals for the franchise. They added that Section 6 is still in the rewriting stages and hasn't yet been given a greenlight. MGM's opposition to the motion to dismiss reproduced scriptwriter Aaron Berg's script for the film and highlighted the allegedly infringing portions of the film.

MGM also claims that Berg was paid $1 million for the script, saying that it wouldn't make sense to pay that much for a script unless they were likely to use it. Universal has assured that the spy film won't infringe on MGM's franchise.

A hearing will take place on July 28th.
