: After completing the then schedule I handed in the new series for direction as was agreed sometime ago, but after not hearing anything for two months, I chased it up and was told that they now "already" have something a little similar in progress being produced by another.
: Having something similar was in no way expressed or indicated to me when I initially told them about this particular technique/style, and I fear that they have taken my proposal for it to be produced by someone else.
: Now although they may not be using my exact pieces, would it be seen that they have infringed any copyright laws for things such as infringement of style and technique.
: Any info would be as you can tell greatly appreciated.
: Thank you

Dear Lorraine Cassell,
We responded to the email about this and suggested a Reality Check (sm). it was not clear that This is a UK matter.
Insofar as the advice we might have for you, I believe that the law is the same in the UK as the US.
