Profits generated by popular product line subject of federal lawsuit
CHICAGO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ — “The Secret,” a motivational movie and book based on the “Law of Attraction,” has spawned a worldwide phenomenon of DVD and book sales. Now, “The Secret” has prompted a lawsuit from the film’s co-creator, Drew Heriot, who says he was denied profits from sales and is entitled to compensation. Attorneys for Mr. Heriot, who co-authored the screenplay and directed “The Secret” movie, filed the federal lawsuit last week in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Illinois/Eastern Division.
“To all who have been inspired by ‘The Secret,’ please know that I am not suing the universal principles of ‘The Secret'” says Mr. Heriot. “Rather, I am suing the corporate principals behind ‘The Secret,’ who promised at the outset that profits would be shared, and who have not kept faith with ‘The Secret’s’ tenets of gratitude and integrity.”
So, Mr. Heriot: a question, please. If you indeed did not get the money you feel is due you, is that because:
A) You weren’t thinking enough positive thoughts
B) The people denying you the money were thinking more positive thoughts about screwing you over than you were about getting said money
C) The magical elves were busy that day
Please show your work.
