HologramUSA Sues Over Tech Used to Create Homer Simpson Hologram

ShockYa has been covering the legal sagas Alki David has been involved in, and here’s the latest legal battle the billionaire is a part of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alki David’s HologramUSA filed a lawsuit last week against 20th Century Fox and Gracie Films. Alki alleges that the 3D representation of the popular Simpsons character that premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con infringes on HologramUSA’s patented system that projects 3D holograms on a stage.

The hologram made its debut July 26 in celebration of The Simpsons’ 25th anniversary and to promote the new Simpsons World app. Even though the hologram stunned Comic-Con attendees, it unfortunately had the unintended effect of drawing legal fire from David and HologramUSA.

The hologram technology has been at the center of controversy before, as you might recall from our other articles. To refresh, a suit has been filed against Pulse Entertainment over the technology patent, and earlier this year, a suit was filed concerning the Michael Jackson hologram that debuted at the Billboard Music Awards.

The plaintiffs, which include Musion Das Hologram and Uwe Maass, are looking for damages for willful infringement. The suit states that the creators of the Homer hologram “did not obtain a license or any other authorization to use the Patented Technology for the Performance.”
