In this day and age, it's almost too hard not to overshare on social media. Unfortunately for one up and coming actor, that lesson was learned the hard way.
Despite the argument in favor of Jarrett Alexander and his claim of plagiarism, Judge Ronald S.W. Lew declared the accused as innocent, stating that there was insufficient evidence to suggest the whole idea had been taken from social media. As for the various tweets directed at Stallone & co, the judge pointed out how they were left without response.
And the controversy does not end there...
The whole ordeal could turn itself on Jarrett Alexander since it appears he used the copyrighted name 'Rocky' and characters in a trailer promoting his script.
The lawyer representing the accused (Robert Rotstein), believes Alexander's claim should have been rejected from the start, and now wants the latter to pay the related court fees.
