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.

Soccer match at Levi’s Stadium expected to cause traffic gridlockWith more than 55,000 soccer fans expected to descend on Levi’s Stadium on Wednesday for a marquee match starting at 6:30 p.m. between the United States and Jamaica, commuters are bracing for rough play on the roadways during the evening rush hour.The 2017 Gold Cup final in Santa Clara is expected to provide transportation headaches that will test newly developed agreements between the stadium and the transit agencies that serve the area.Traffic gridlock around the stadium is expected to begin as early as 1:30 p.m., when the parking lots open at the venue, and spike again when the event ends about 9:30 p.m., police predict.Because California’s Great America near the stadium will remain open Wednesday, law enforcement agencies will not be able to set up counterflow lanes, which interfere with access to the amusement park.
