Paula Petrella, daughter of the deceased screenwriter Frank Petrella, said MGM Holdings Inc and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment had infringed the copyright of a 1963 screenplay upon which the 1980 movie was based. Fox, a subsidiary of Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc., is a named defendant because it has the rights to distribute MGM movies on DVD. Petrella, who inherited rights to the screenplay upon her father’s death, renewed the copyright in 1991 but did not take action until the late 1990s. Then she said MGM was infringing on her rights by continuing to market the movie. MGM successfully claimed that Petrella’s failure to assert her claims earlier meant she had forfeited them.  Full Article
