CBS, Paramount Sue over Trek

CBS and Paramount have announced a lawsuit against the producer of the fan-funded Star Trek fan film Axanar. The copyright infringement suit names both Axanar and Prelude to Axanar and seeks $150,000 for each element of Star Trek the films infringe. Axanar’s producer, Alec Peters , raised $638,000 on Kickstarter, more than half a million more than he targeted.
