James Cameron faces a $4.1M lawsuit over Avatar from Roger Dean, who claims Cameron stole his idea for the film and never gave him any recognition. Dean states that Cameron deliberately copied his custom artwork before the film and used it for his own needs. Dean continues, “The similarities of each such work are substantial, continuing, and direct so as to rule out any accidental copying or similarity in scenes common to the genre,” according to OK. This is not the first of lawsuits against James Cameron (one from a sci-fi screenwriter, artist Gerald Morawski, etc.)
