On March 28, 2016, the legal team for Axanar Productions and Alec Peters, the firm of Winston & Strawn LLP, filed a response to the AMENDED copyright infringement complaint that was brought by Paramount and CBS on March 11, 2015. The response is Axanar’s second and again seeks a dismissal of the complaint on a number of legal grounds.
The original complaint was brought by Paramount and CBS on December 29, 2015. Axanar’s legal team filed a response on February 22, 2016 seeking dismissal of the lawsuit on a number of legal grounds. Presumably, that response is what has motivated Paramount and CBS to amend their complaint.
