Stephenie Meyer Sued for Copyright Infringement

We've been busy about following stories of Eclipse, ROBSTEN and other characters that we haven't been updated to whats going on with our very own Stephenie Meyer. New York Times posted this Aug. 21


An author who accused Stephenie Meyer, the writer of the best-selling “Twilight” novels, of plagiarism has filed suit against her, Reuters reported.

Earlier this month, a lawyer for Jordan Scott, the author of the 2006 vampire novel “The Nocturne,” sent a cease-and-desist letter to Ms. Meyer’s publisher, Hachette Book Group, that said her work contains many situations that are similar to those in Ms. Meyer’s 2008 book “Breaking Dawn,” the fourth entry in her series about a romance between a mortal woman and an undead vampire. A lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in California reiterated those similarities, noting, for example, that both books contained passages about a wedding and an after-wedding sex scene on a beach. Hachette Book Group said that Ms. Meyer had based “Breaking Dawn” on an earlier, unpublished sequel to “Twilight” that she wrote. The publisher called the suit a “publicity stunt to further Ms. Scott’s career,” and said it expected the court would dismiss it, according to Reuters.


I can't say if this is true about her, but its really a bad news!!!....I can't further comment.

twiharders sometimes, tend to "crack" on True Blood ( in true blood Vampire falls in love with dumb human girl, who;s side kick friend loves her too and he is a shape shifter- turns into a dog most of the time. you know the story)

However when i started watching True blood, I got the impression of Twilight. I told my son that True blood had copied off of Twilight, and he said no mom, Twilight copied off of True blood..

However that doesn't ness. mean the dirty P word has to come up. I guess we will have to wait this one out and see what happens. I am just happy to see the movies come out, the big wigs can fight it out in court as long as i get to see Robert Pattinson on the big screen as Edward.Happy:)
