Entertainment: Lawsuit Filed Over "Top Gun: Maverick"

Lawsuit Filed Over "Top Gun: Maverick"

Paramount Pictures is being sued over “Top Gun: Maverick.” The original film was based on a 1983 article in a California magazine by Ehud Yonay. He died in 2021, but his widow and son – Shosh and Yuval Yonay – filed a notice in 2018 reclaiming the copyright to the story, which took effect in 2020. 

According to the paperwork, Paramount distributed “Top Gun: Maverick” without obtaining a new license to use the underlying material. In addition to damages, the suit seeks an injunction to bar the studio from distributing the film. 

“Top Gun: Maverick” is currently the top-grossing film in the theaters. So far, the Tom Cruise flick has brought in $300 million domestically.
