Visual effects firm says that Disney contracted with people who stole the technologyThe company was slapped with a lawsuit on Monday by a visual effects company, which claims that its technology was misappropriated for “Beauty and the Beast,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and Avengers:“[I]n all of the film industry and media accolades about the record-breaking success of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and the acclaimed cutting-edge digital MOVA Contour technology that made the film’s success possible, nowhere is it mentioned that the patented and copyright-protected MOVA Contour technology was stolen from its inventor and developer, Rearden LLC, and its owner Rearden Mova LLC,” the suit reads.Nowhere is it mentioned that although Disney had previously contracted with Rearden LLC and its controlled entities on four previous major motion pictures to use MOVA Contour and knew of a Rearden Demand Letter to one of the thieves demanding immediate return of the stolen MOVA Contour system, Disney nonetheless contracted with the thieves to use the stolen MOVA Contour system.

- No link yet between fires at Oakland, Emeryville construction sites
By Kurtis Alexander - Monday Jul 10, 2017
Investigators looking into a series of suspicious predawn fires at housing construction sites in Oakland and Emeryville, including a massive blaze last week north of downtown Oakland, have not found evidence linking any of the incidents, officials said Monday.A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives spoke as 22 agents from the bureau joined with local partners to probe the wreckage of Friday’s fire at 23rd and Valdez streets, where plans called for 196 market-rate apartments and 31,500 square feet of retail.ATF crews positioned two mobile work stations in a fenced-off parking lot next to the burn site, now a block-long pile of blackened boards and charred debris.The cause of the fire is not known, but investigators have determined that three previous fires over the past 13 months were intentionally set: one that tore through an unfinished 41-unit apartment building on Lester Avenue in Oakland and two that gutted the same housing and retail complex in Emeryville.Federal investigators released surveillance images of a suspect in a May 13 fire in Emeryville at the Intersection, a $35 million mixed-use project on San Pablo Avenue on the Oakland border.Though the investigation into last week’s fire is just beginning, some local leaders and developers are suggesting the blaze may be part of a broader arson plot, with some speculating that new construction is being targeted as a protest against gentrification.“There is a militant group of people who want to go back to the flawed policies of the past — it’s been proven that limiting the supply of new housing doesn’t bring down prices of housing,” said Michael Ghielmetti, president of Signature Development Group.The developer turned over surveillance video to authorities Friday, according to Singer, and had not heard back about the progress of the investigation.Wood Partners said 18 neighboring housing units were considered uninhabitable after the fire, and that the company, the city and the American Red Cross were working to help the residents.A $110,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the arsonist responsible for the fires in Emeryville and on Lester Avenue in Oakland.

- Federal investigators probe West Oakland development
By Kimberly Veklerov - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
Officials with the U.S. Department of Transportation and Environmental Protection Agency have opened an investigation into whether the approval process behind an industrial development in West Oakland was racially discriminatory because of high levels of air pollution that are expected to seep into the surrounding black community. The investigation will focus on whether the construction approvals — and the broader public participation process for developing the former Army base — discriminated against black, Latino and Asian American residents in violation of the federal Civil Rights Act, according to a letter sent Tuesday by the federal agencies to Mayor Libby Schaaf and Michael Colbruno, a port commissioner. “Even as the community was saying this isn’t what we want and we don’t want more truck traffic, the city was pursuing that avenue,” said Adenike Adeyeye, a senior researcher and policy analyst at the law firm. Oakland officials have long known that air pollution and associated health problems are higher in low-income, minority neighborhoods because of poor housing conditions and proximity to industrial plants. Black children under age 5 in Alameda County are six times as likely as white children to be hospitalized for asthma emergencies, according to a city report published in March that looked at public health data. The federal probe comes just weeks after an Alameda County civil grand jury slammed the Oakland City Council for failing to abide by state and local laws governing open meeting laws, saying that officials engaged in “backroom dealing” as they negotiated with developers over public land sales.
