More Empire Drama… ‘Empire’ Producers, Fox Sued for $1.5 Billion for Copyright Infringement.

Another lawsuit for the hit show ‘Empire’.

The Wrap reports,  An author is alleging that Fox, Lee Daniels, Danny Strong and others involved in the hit series “Empire” infringed his copyright, and he is suing for $1.5 billion in damages.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Virginia, Timothy J. Levi alleges that the show borrowed heavily from his book “Unity Incorporated: The Mastermind,” which was published in 2007.

Fox did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Levi alleges he gave a copy of his manuscript to Virginia lawyer Robert Walker, who made a copy of it and handed it over to Strong and Daniels at some point before “Empire” premiered in 2015.
