PANAMA PAPERS LAW FIRM SUES NETFLIX OVER “THE LAUNDROMAT” FILM

On 16th October, OCCRP reported that Mossack and Fonseca are taking Netflix to court.  In a lawsuit in the US, the firm alleges defamation, invasion of privacy, trademark infringement, and false advertising, and requests that the film’s release be put on hold.  The suit states that the plaintiffs did not authorize the use of the Mossack Fonseca logo, which is used “in disparaging ways” a total of 8 times between the trailer and the film.
