Re: Roger Dean sues over movie Avatar
^ Actually, your side-by-side comparisons make me more certain Roger has a case.
Whether or not it gets him 50 million and a massive recall of the original movie would remain to be seen.
Yeah, he's overreaching with that big time, but it's possibly just a bargaining ploy to arrive at a higher settlement, if indeed things get that far.
I certainly think he deserves having a credit added to any future releases of the film and to be compensated for the use of his design style, possibly through a lump sum monetary settlement and/or royalties on any future releases (the latter is less likely).

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

The lone and level sands stretch far away.
