Hologram USA has filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox violating its patents in exhibiting a 3D representation of Homer Simpson during a panel at last month’s Comic-Con.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hologram USA and its CEO, Alki David, say the hologram infringed on its patented system to project 3D images on stage.

This is not the first time the company has filed legal papers in the name of protecting its patents, having targeted a hologram of Michael Jackson at the Billboard Music Awards, among others.

A spokesperson for Fox says, “This filing is totally without merit and we have no comment except to say that once again, Mr. David has demonstrated his insatiable need to remain relevant.”
