AMC Threatens Copyright Lawsuit Over Walking Dead Spoiler

https://torrentfreak.com/amc-threate...poiler-160614/

Quote:
Can someone infringe copyright by revealing a fact from an unaired (possibly unfilmed) TV show? That's the assertion of AMC, whose lawyers have threatened the operators of The Spoiling Dead community with a lawsuit if they reveal who got killed in the last episode of the series. TorrentFreak has obtained a copy of the threats, and they're quite something.

The Spoiling Dead Fans (TSD) is a community of hardcore The Walking Dead fans who have an even greater interest in the show than most. As their name suggests, they’re dedicated to obtaining all the latest information about the hit show – including information not yet in the public domain.
The article goes into detail about the copyright threat.

So, a certain prominent member of the cast has just been announced as being cast in a certain MCU movie. Hmm, I wonder ...

Of course on TWD they spend more time not working than working...

Frakking lawyers; they're worse than the zombies.

That doesn't mean anything. The TWD actors have several months per year where they are on hiatus and movies regularly set their shooting schedules based on the availability of their actors.

2 prominent cast members of TWD were in Batman V Superman and they're still on the show.

I'd love to see this go to court. Unless the person posting the information has a signed contract with AMC with an NDA I seriously doubt they'd have much of a case.

Unfortunately the people being threatened likely don't have the means to fight this in court. So whether a suit would have any real merit becomes irrelevant. The threat itself will serve it's purpose.
