UK Screenwriter suing Pixar

A U.K.screenwriter is suing Pixar for copyright infringement and breach of implied contract, claiming that Cars and Cars 2 are based on a story and characters he submitted around 1993. In his lawsuit filed in U.S. federal court, Jake Mandeville-Anthony claims that he sent copies of his works to various production companies, including Disney and met with Jim Morris and gave him copies of his project. Mandeville-Anthony says in his complaint that he sees overwhelming similarities between his creation and the Cars franchise. He’s seeking to stop the release of Cars 2 on June 24.
