Paramount is being sued for $20 million

The lawsuit brought by the rightful heir of the famous author Truman Capote has received a development. Recall that the studio Paramount Pictures received allegations of infringement on the adaptation of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. According to Western media reports, now the company will have to answer to a lawsuit for copyright infringement. It is also demanded 20 million dollars. The reason was the news about the new version of the script – the rumors circulated within the studio.

Recall that the adaptation was presented to the public exactly 60 years ago. The key role in the picture was taken by Audrey Hepburn. The project turned out to be a classic of the genre, earning several Oscar nominations. By the way, the song from the movie ended up winning the American Film Academy Award.

Nine years ago the Library of Congress decided that “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” should be recognized as the national cultural heritage. As a result, the picture has been put on permanent storage in a special archive of the National Film Registry.

Last year it was revealed that a screening of the film would be accompanied by warnings that it contained “outdated views” that might offend a particular audience.
