It takes real talent to make a film look distinct. Sure, there are a variety of tools at a filmmaker’s disposal, and various combinations of cameras and lenses and lights that can create differing images, but more often than not—especially in the wake of the advent of digital photography—a lot of films have started to look rather same-y.

For years, some plaintiff-side litigators in Hollywood have complained that when it comes to arbitration, the cards are stacked in favor of big studios, which repeatedly use these alternative dispute-resolution forums. But in February, the tables turned when one JAMS arbitrator decided that not only did 21st Century Fox cheat the creative talent behind Bones out of tens of millions of dollars in profits, but that the fraud was so reprehensible that Fox should also pay an additional $128 million in punitive damages.

On April 15, the European Council gave final approval to a new copyright law for the 28 member states of the EU. Brussels might seem very far away, but the changes in European copyright laws will be felt in Southern California — in our established entertainment industry, among the start-ups of Silicon Beach, and perhaps even by the Los Angeles Times.
