    I don't think they said "supernatural" enough.

      After looking into this man's filmography, mostly wannabe pornos, I can't believe that Pirates of the caribbean is his creation.

        This smacks of the Muggle lawsuit several years ago, where the plaintiff "lost" all of her originals in a freak blizzard.

        Really, a foggy image of a ship in submissable as evidence? I can't think of a single filmmaker who wouldn't use that shot in a pirate movie.

        Also, if Disney was really plagerizing this movie, do you think they'd be stupid enough to NOT change the name of the pirate ship?

        I've read in several places, that whenever a popular idea emerges, there are always several people who sue, claiming they had the same idea.

          Even though there is a movie that is exactly the same as the first POTC movie, that did infact come out 9 years before POTC was released?

                is this the same guy that didn't copyright his stuff until 2003. Seriously on the Tellnotales fourm we are talking about the same thing and if you check the copyright office, (there is a reg number, can't remember, gotta check the Tellnotales.) It's not copyright until 2003.

                  Does anybody know if there is any place where this film could possibly be viewed?

                      Regarding his comment about the Wicked Wench not being used, it's been resolved with some of the spinoffs created around the time the new movie came out. The Wicked Wench WAS the Black Pearl before it sank and was brought back up from the depths by Davy Jones.

                          If that's true, he probably won't get it. Copyrights must be filed within 3 months of publication to be able to have full protection since the publication. If they do not, then they are only protected for infringements that take place *after* the registration date.

                          If it's copyright date is in 2003, this is after Disney's copyright registration date.

                          While the older supernatural pirate movie *is* copyrighted according to law, because of the lack of proof via copyright registration, the only thing that he can do is ask nicely.

                          It's going to be thrown out.

                          Besides, if the opening sequence of his film is an homage to PotC, what's he whining about for that?
