Copyright: Woods vs 12 Monkeys

This is a pretty clear cut case of someone appropriating someone else's work without first gaining their consent. Terry Gilliam, the director of 12 Monkeys, says so himself.

I appreciated Lebbeus Woods' need to sue the film-makers, not just because they'd taken his work without permission, but that they'd recontextualised it into a torture device when he'd intentionally created it to be an ambiguous/neutral seat without his permission.
