Joe Jonas Accused Of Plagiarism
A pair of moviemakers have accused pop star Joe Jonas of stealing ideas for his new video from a 2010 indie film.
The Jonas Brothers star has launched himself as a solo artist and the promo for his latest single, Just In Love, shows him roaming around Paris, France with French model Angele Sassy.
Writer/actor Mark Polish and his director brother Michael are convinced the video includes scenes which are nearly identical to shots from their film For Lovers Only and Mark is furious that Jonas and the video's director, Jaci Judelson, did not give them a credit.
He tells TheWrap.com, "It's very disheartening that a fellow director would go to those lengths to copy For Lovers Only and not credit us. If they had said our film was their inspiration, we would have been flattered. But nowhere in any of their materials do they say that we were an influence on them, which is upsetting to us as artists.
"And it makes this feel like plagiarism."
