For the second time in as many months, Klum has been sued for copyright infringement over Project Runway, the reality show she hosts on Bravo
Heidi Klum is facing another lawsuit which is still about her latest work, Project Runway, the reality show she hosts on Bravo. It's New York-based designers Cynthia Rodriguez and Elizabeth Marie Anne Zwiebach who filed the suit, claiming they've pitched a 40-page outline of a reality show called American Runway to Klum's agents in 2003 and expressed their interest in developing the project.
Further they revealed to have registered and copyrighted their work with the Writers Guild of America in March 2003 and apparently Project Runway is "strikingly similar" to their original concept. Thus, Cynthia and Elizabeth name the likes of Klum, Disney, Disney's Miramax Film Corp. unit, Miramax founders Harvey and Robert Weinstein, their new venture Weinstein Co. and NBC Universal as defendants in the lawsuit.
