No Original Ideas Left for Movie Lawsuits, Either
Court reinstates Terminator lawsuit:
    An appeals court has ruled that an Australian couple can sue director James Cameron over an effect used in the film "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."

    Filia and Constantinos Kourtis claim that they came up with the idea for a character that changes shape for a 1987 movie called "The Minotaur."
Meanwhile, ancient tribes from the British Isles have consulted their lawyers for the Kourtises' theft of the concept of the changeling, shapeshifting "monsters" who stole children (like the young John Connor--see?!) and ancient Greeks have filed preperatory paperwork on the title, which refers to a monster first slain by Theseus, whose story was told by entertainers in Athens before even James Cameron was born.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
