A woman named Sophia Stewart, Black Author wins The Matrix Copyright Infringement Case. A story that restores faith. More power to Sophia!
This little known story has met a just conclusion, as Sophia Stewart, African American author of The Matrix will finally receive her just due from the copyright infringement of her original work!!!
A six-year dispute has ended involving Sophia Stewart, the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers. Stewart’s allegations, involving copyright infringement and racketeering, were received and acknowledged by the Central District of California, Judge Margaret Morrow presiding.
Stewart, a New Yorker who has resided in Salt Lake City for the past five years, will recover damages from the films, The Matrix I, II and III, as well as The Terminator and its sequels. She will soon receive one of the biggest payoffs in the history of Hollywood , as the gross receipts of both films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars.
Stewart filed her case in 1999, after viewing the Matrix, which she felt had been based on her manuscript, ‘The Third Eye,’ copyrighted in 1981. In the mid-eighties Stewart had submitted her manuscript to an ad placed by the Wachowski Brothers, requesting new sci-fi works….
Stewart goes on to say: ’The reason you have not seen any of this in the media is because Warner Brothers parent company is AOL-Time Warner…. this GIANT owns 95 percent of the media… let me give you a clue as to what they own in the media business… New York Times papers/magazines, LA Times papers/magazines, People Magazine, CNN news, Extra, Celebrity Justice, Entertainment Tonight, HBO, New Line Cinema, DreamWorks, Newsweek, Village Roadshow and many, many more! They are not going to report on themselves. They have been suppressing my case for years.’

What an awesome woman!
can’t open the link but based on the information above, it’s about fucking time
So happy for this woman.
About goddamn time.
I just lost a bunch of respect for the Wachowskis (although ungendering Lana is still not very cool, just because you’re mad at her).
Its false. As someone has already said its been debunked.
Ok. Debunked - would the people who forwarded this also please forward on the Snopes article? That’d be appreciated. I dislike plagiarists, but even more so I dislike people who falsely allege plagiarism to discredit and harm talented people’s original work.
