Default repcisg saw this one Christopher Eric James/Glen A. Larson made some money

Christopher Eric James* to Universal Studios ďThis is a legal stickupĒ

Or maybe Universalís view, ĎFork it up, you mother-stickers this is a legal f*ck upí?

Did anyone notice all those Glen A. Larson in the credits; The Scifi Channel was lulled by Larsonís WGA legal loophole of using the alias *Christopher Eric James. Then in a longtime TV entertainment insiderís coup, Glen A. Larson used his status as the creator of Battlestar Galactica, to actually prevent the remake from airing, for money? READ ON

After the December 8th premiere date to be plastered all over by Scifi. When a dude with a briefcase not a gun, did a legal shakedown for an obscene amount of money, The Scifi Channel/USANetwork/Universal somewhere between that proverbial rock, and that legendary hard place, they remitted the extortion money.

Itís not like Glen A. Larson hasnít done this before, when ABC tried to cash in on the Battlestar Galactica name with the regrettable Galactica: 1980, he did a similar legal shakedown to ABC, hello Universal Studios a continuation fan (repcisg) and a Paramount employee saw one this coming.

After Larsonís lawsuit the right to make a Battlestar Galactica, Universal won the name Galactica, but Larson owns the right to make a ĎBattlestarí movie. After Universal Studios got wind of the no doubt surprising interest of Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Epic Series, indeed it hit 10 on DVD sales @ Amazon.

Ya recon Universal feels a bit foolish allowing a small niche cable channel with ads, farm out this franchise?

If the remake ever does happen Glen A. Larson will make a small fortune, he did create Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D. Moore has created what, according to imdb.com nothing, he has gone no where but where creative minds have estabished a fanbase, speaks volumes, but that is still a hell of a lot better than me.
