Alongside Night author sues for copyright infringement

Post by Tall Tyrion on Mon Jun 07, 2010 11:43 am

I don't know whether to laugh or cry:

Author/filmmaker, J. Neil Schulman, today
announced his intention to file a lawsuit for copyright infringement of
his 1979 novel, Alongside Night, which tells the story of the
collapse of the American economy due to massive government overspending
and the issuing of unbacked money and credit to pay the interest on the
national debt.


Schulman intends to name the United States government as his
primary defendant. According to Schulman, “The United States government
— both the executive and legislative branches, aided by the courts,
have stolen the entire premise — and a lot of the plot — of my novel!”


Schulman also intends to name, as co-defendants in his
copyright infringement lawsuit, the Federal Reserve Bank, the European
Union, the International Monetary Fund, General Motors, and the country
of Greece.

Is this a joke, or is this person just trying to drum up publicity for his book?

Actually, I think he's trying to get financing to turn it into a movie, but given the current state of the world economy it certainly is ironic.
