Homer Simpson Hologram Appearance at Comic-Con Prompts Lawsuit

Hologram USA, Musion Das Hologram Limited and Uwe Maass are suing Twentieth Century Fox and Gracie Films for "willful infringement" after Homer Simpson made his first-ever appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego last month -- via hologram. You can watch the appearance, featuring SIMPSONS creator Matt Groening, below.

The suit (see the full details via The Hollywood Reporter) contends: "Defendants do not possess a valid license to practice that technology. Such a license may only be provided by Plaintiffs. In spite of their knowledge of Plaintiff's rights, the Performance was made anyway."

FOX has not released a comment, so stay tuned for updates.

The Simpsons, entering its historic 26th season, continues to poke fun at itself and everything in its wake. Now the longest-running scripted show in television history, The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. HOMER (Dan Castellaneta) works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; MARGE (Julie Kavner) tries to keep the peace in her family; BART (Nancy Cartwright) is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; eight-year-old LISA (Yeardley Smith) is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby MAGGIE conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.
