Tarantino takes Gawker to court

SHARE Tarantino takes Gawker to court

Hell hath no fury as Quentin Tarantino — especially when he believes his intellectual property has been messed with! The Oscar winner is suing Gawker Media’s push-the-envelope New York websides, Gawker and Defamer — for posting links to Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” script.

Tarantino is alleging the sites violated copyright protections.

“Gawker Media has made a businesss of predatory journalism, violating people’s rights to make a buck,” Tarantino’s federal civil action claimed, filed in California.

First reported by the Hollywood Reporter, the Tarantino’s suit claims the websites “went too far. Rather than merely publishing a news story reporting that Plantiff’s screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission, Gawker Media cross the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire screenplay illegally.”
