ALBANY, N.Y.

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.

- Oakland man charged with attempt to support terrorist group
By Bob Egelko - Saturday Jul 22, 2017
A 22-year-old Oakland man was charged Friday with attempting to support terrorism by allegedly opening social media accounts to promote the Islamic State last year and offering to join the organization.In one court filing unsealed Friday, a federal magistrate said prosecutors had alleged that Amer Sinan Alhaggagi “went so far as to meet with undercover agents on multiple occasions to plan a potential terrorist attack.”The federal grand jury indictment charged Alhaggagi with attempting to provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization.Between July 24 and Nov. 29 of last year, the indictment said, Alhaggagi was "opening social media accounts understanding and intending that such accounts were to be used by, and for the benefit and promotion of, ISIS, and personnel, in the form of himself, to a foreign terrorist organization, namely ISIS."The indictment did not give details of the social media accounts or specify how, or to whom, Alhaggagi offered "personnel, in the form of himself" to the terrorist organization.[...] the newly disclosed court document quoted U.S. Magistrate Kandis Westmore as saying at a Dec. 20 hearing that the government had offered enough evidence to show Alhaggagi would be a “danger to the community,” might flee if released and should remain in custody.Defense lawyer Mary McNamara said Friday the terrorism charges appear to be based on “Internet chat conversations that he had with a number of unknown people” that Alhaggagi never took seriously.
