Project Ultraman No more?
Our friend Dhiti Chantravekin informed the Lost Kaiju that Tsuburaya Chaiyo may no longer be airing the much anticipated series Project Ultraman. Here's the scoop.
Tsuburaya Chaiyo has lost a court battle with Tsuburaya Productions in the Thai Intellectual Property Court which rules that all new Tsuburaya Chaiyo's designed Ultramans, i.e. Ultraman Millennium, Ultraman Elite and Dark Ultraman, are considered a copyright violation. Therefore, there is a slim chance that Project Ultraman will be put on air. Tsuburaya Chaiyo didn't expect this outcome, and was badly prepared to cope with the situation. Compromise between the two companies is unlikely.
