It has been, to be frank, a bit of a mess.

How One Fan Film Set Things Off

In May 2016, one of the nerdiest things ever written was filed with the United States District Court. In a ruling by Judge R. Gary Klausner, His Honor declared that a lawsuit filed by Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios should proceed, because:

“Although the Court declines to address whether Plaintiffs’ Claims will prosper at this time, the Court does find Plaintiffs’ claims will live long enough to survive Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss.”

These people do it for the love of Trek, hence why it was disappointing to hear Paramount Pictures & CBS–now joint owners of the franchise–were going after the team behind fan-made film Axanar for war last year, citing “direct, contributory and vicarious copyright infringement”, treating them like they were all devils with Photoshop. Colour me surprised therefore to hear J.J. Abrams, at the Star Trek fan event last weekend where the Star Trek Beyond trailer dropped, »
