The screening will take place at JCAL, 161-04, Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica NY 11423 (Southeast Queens) from 6pm to 9pm. Choosing JCAL is Gregory's ongoing effort to "bring entertainment (by Independent Artists and emphasis on Queens Artists) to this community at an affordable price." Immediately following the screening is a book signing of the book by Gregory, "Why I Sued Eddie Murphy."
"At the heart of my efforts to bringing quality entertainment to our community is: that our residents should not have to travel to Manhattan to experience quality entertainment;
Gregory stars in part 5 of the documentary and gives a brilliant insight into the world of Intellectual Property disputes from many different perspectives. At times he is quite humorous when discussing some copyright matters. On the other hand, no one can mistake his passion about his works (plays, films, t.v. pilots, books...) when it comes to using his work(s) without his permission.
One of the highlights of the film is when Gregory speaks about his personal experiences of his 100 million dollar copyright lawsuit against Eddie Murphy, Universal Studios and others over the hit movie, "LIFE". Rarely has the public ever had an opportunity to listen to an ordinary person explain how the law and the court sytem is supposed to works as opposed to how it really works; especially in cases of rich v. poor.
The docu-series is very entertaining, but its educational and informational value with respect to; "public awareness of due process of the law", "knowing how to protect copyrighted works", and "what to do when a copyrighted work is used without proper authorization"
"There are so many books, articles, and lectures in the libraries, colleges, and universities by lawyers, professors, experts on copyright and Intellectual Property--but none from the experiences of an everyday person/Independent Artist. Much of it is required reading for students in some educational institutions and this "ground breaking" documentary should be included."
Again, rarely does the public gets the opportunity to hear how the sytem actually works through the eyes of an ordinary citizen who represented himself from the lowest federal court all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Gregory's first-hand experieces was the basis for his book, "Why I Sued Eddie Murphy".
