African American Author wins The Matrix Copyright Infringement Case; bet you didn’t even know that the Matrix trilogy was under copyright infringement in the first place.
Sophia Stewart, Mother of the Matrix
This little known story black history (and black present) fact has met a worthy end. Sophia Stewart, African American author of The Matrix will finally receive her rightful compensation from the copyright infringement of her original work!!!
A six-year dispute has ended involving Sophia Stewart, the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers. Stewart’s allegations, involving copyright infringement and racketeering, were received and acknowledged by the Central District of California, Judge Margaret Morrow presiding.
Stewart, originally from New York, has resided in Salt Lake City for the last five years, will recover damages from the films, The Matrix I, II and III, as well as The Terminator and its sequels. OH… YOU’VE HEARD OF THESE MOVIES…
She will soon receive one of the biggest payoffs in Hollywood history. The gross receipts of both films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars. Stewart apparently sent a script to the Wachowski Brothers, and apparently, they liked the script so much they decided to use it without telling the poor writer.
They altered it just enough to squeak by copyright infringements, but a judge has finally seen otherwise.
Why didn’t they just give the poor black girl some credit… because perhaps she would have altered the way the movie went and would have had more control over them; whatever the reasons are they had, they’ve been busted.
Creativity of Dark Skin Race in America
Sophia Stewart is going to cash in greatly and tell her side of the story as well. The amazing thing is that, this great movie, well these great movies, were done well by ‘Hollywood’. They were excellent depictions many people live by today in the sci-fi world.
However, the MAJOR thing is that this is nothing more than the creativity of a dark skin person, a sister, and the truth is out.
This certainly encourages our young black children to realize a dream to keep the dream. Also for them to think creatively, and NEVER give up or doubt. There is nothing is impossible for them to achieve, if they only believe and use their God-given mind and talents!
