Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. v. American Honda Motor Co.
900 F. Supp. 1287 (C.D. Cal. 1995) - full text opinion
Never Say Never Again was essentially a remake of the movie Thunderball, but is widely considered to be inferior to the original. Its production was the result of a long legal battle between its producer, Kevin McClory, and MGM, which had purchased movie rights from Ian Fleming, the author of the original Bond novels. McClory tried to make a second Bond film on his own, to be called Warhead, but was prevented by the 9th Circuit ruling Danjaq et al v. McClory.
