The United Kingdom’s IT publication, The Register, recently published an article describing attorney Marc Randazza’s efforts to keep the Klingon language from copyright encroachment.
But, the Language Creation Society says, although it is “understandable that Paramount might feel some sense of ownership over the creation,” the reality is that it has since become a much bigger thing. “The language has taken on a life of its own,” reads the society’s court submission. The organization liberally scattered Klingon phrases and proverbs in its text to make its point.
The case will be heard on May 9, 2016 in Los Angeles federal court.
