INTELLECTUAL THEFT
17 February 2021 | by collord-95695See all my reviews

This is the shocking and true story of an original 9 part drama script being stolen by the media giant Sky. This drama series was written by a single-parent male student who entrusted the entire script to one person only - a journalist - who then contacted Sky. The sale of this brilliant drama could have changed his life and that of his family as it is the 13th most expensive drama ever produced by Sky. Sky should be ashamed, as should the three famous script writers who were involved in its editing. Please spend 10 minutes watching this and share with your friends... creative integrity and copyright is at risk in a huge way if Sky is not challenged.... thank you
