CBS lawsuit Against ABC

ABC Responds to Lawsuit – There’s Nothing Secret About Big Brother!

With “The Glass House” series premiere set to air on June 18th, 2012 there is still a black cloud looming over head with regard to the lawsuit filed by CBS. Despite the claims that ABC stole trade secrets from CBS, “The Glass House” is still going full steam ahead with its new reality series. Evidence that ABC is moving forward with their scheduled show is that they just released their first promotional commercial for The Glass House.

ABC responds to CBS’s claims that they have stolen their “Big Brother” trade secrets in the making of “The Glass House” saying that NOTHING about Big Brother is a secret. ABC has filed their response to the copyright infringement lawsuit filed by CBS – requesting the presiding judge to dismiss the “over-the-top” lawsuit as soon as possible.

In the court documents, ABC responds by saying the insinuation that “The Glass House” is stealing trade secrets is “outrageous” adding:

“there is nothing secret about editing a program with multiple feeds together or developing a narrative structure for it. That is reality TV.”

The very first commercial just aired for ABC’s “The Glass house” which will première on June 18th, 2012 a few weeks before Big Brother 14 on July 12th, 2012. The new reality TV show The Glass House is very similar to Big Brother, which is why CBS is currently suing ABC for copyright infringement. It will be interesting to see if the lawsuit affects either of the two reality TV shows this season, and whether they will continue to battle it out for viewers each summer. One thing is very clear, that both shows will need to step up their game to ensure they don’t lose viewers. Which is all good news for us fans, as I can just imagine the Twists, and Drama that we’re going to see this season. OR as Big Brother says “Expect the Unexpected”.

CBS and ABC go to the mattresses over Glass House and Big Brother Similarities

The Glass House Vs Big Brother saga continues. Last Friday we reported that CBS had sent a cease and desist letter to ABC regarding it’s summer Reality TV show “The Glass House”. We now learn that CBS is Suing ABC over that show citing copyright infringement and stealing of trade secrets. When we first found out about The Glass House we immediately thought Big Brother Clone so it’s not a stretch to see a lawsuit like this. Television shows are copied all the time why did CBS target this one. It’s not 100% the same there are a few small differences, it’s like comparing The Talk and the View or even The Bachelor Pad to Big Brother, they all share similarities and nobody is suing over them.

If Glass House (ABC) is copying Big Brother (CBS) and ‘The Talk’ (CBS) is copying ‘The View’ (ABC) why is CBS so butt sore over Glass House and ABC isn’t about The talk?

CBS calls out Michael O’Sullivan in particular. A former supervising producer of Big Brother who is currently working as a producer for Glass House saying he was resposable for BB’s concept, design and execution. Also Corie Henson and Kenny Rosen both lower level producers along with 16 other staff workers from the CBS show.

Here is the summary of action taken from the filed lawsuit.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then CBS should take pride in the ABC’s latest reality television project “Life in a Glass House” (“Glass House”)
