Photographer Claims Apple Copied his Photo in Apple TV+ Show

Adrian Murphy writes that Apple copied his photo of two kids looking into a glowing chest, a visual that can be seen in Amazing Stories on Apple TV+.

To me, this is flagrant copyright infringement and is using my intellectual property to derive visual elements for one of the most viewed portions of their entire series… the intro that plays before every episode. I’m flattered by the obvious imitation, but I’m also disappointed by the obvious theft.

The scene does look visually similar to Mr. Murphy’s photo. I wonder if he will legally pursue this.

    I saw the two pictures. BS. As much BS as that copyright violation verdict against Pharell Williams.

    His photo might have inspired the Apple photo but to call that a copyright violation is plain BS.

      I agree totally. this is a standard shot, sometimes with a treasure chest, sometimes with a fireplace, but the staging is fairly common. He might THINK he was the first but no.
