Sophia Stewart didn't attend her June 13 hearing at the U.S. federal court building in downtown Los Angeles. She saw the proceeding as a minor hurdle on the way to an anticipated July 12 trial in her copyright infringement suit against directors Andy and Larry Wachowski, James Cameron and other defendants--a trial she imagined would be "one of the largest suits for damages in the history of the film industry."

I'm willing to wager a billion dollars (which I don't have) that every idea in the "Terminator" or "Matrix" movies that Sophia Stewart claims to have thought up has a historical antecedent ("The Billion-Dollar Myth," by Kemp Powers, July 31). The notion of our mundane existence being a dimly lit sham from which we could escape if we had just the right knowledge or stepped through the right mirror dates at least as far back as "The Wizard of Oz." I realize that the focus of the article was the urban myth surrounding Stewart's case, but with a little bit of effort, the author could have shown that perhaps Stewart doesn't have both oars in the water--that she is, in fact, just another amateur writer who has reinvented the wheel.
