Artist Considers IP Lawsuit Against Olympic Game Designers

British artist Lee Merrill Sendall wants to know why the illustrations and concept he presented in 2009 as part of a bid for Arts Council England (ACE) funding appear so similar to the design of part of the Olympic Games opening ceremony.

Thanks to our Twitter followers who prompted this post. We hope Sendall gets to the bottom of this, and if in fact his copyrights were infringed upon under UK law, that he get his due credit and compensation.
