Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Journalist Accuses Vox Of Stealing Intellectual Property For Netflix Show. And He’s Got Receipts”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Vox Media reportedly stole intellectual property from documentary producer Danny Gold for an episode of its Netflix show “Explained,” Gold tweeted Wednesday.

“Explained” is a show produced by Vox and aired on Netflix. It aims to speak about various issues that affect people’s lives. Gold said he pitched an episode idea for the show in 2018 and later discovered the exact same scenario was used for an episode that aired in 2019. The episode aired after his idea was given a pass by Vox.

Screenshots tweeted by Gold show his pitch, which was sent to Vox on Jan. 22, 2018. Gold’s idea was to air an episode titled “The Next Pandemic.” The documentary producer included potential interviewees such as philanthropist Bill Gates.

Wow crazy! My first suggested interview in the treatment was Bill Gates. The first interview I see mentioned in the IMDB for this piece is Bill Gates. Wild coincidence, or @voxdotcom ripping off a freelancer’s work? pic.twitter.com/84pJsOtqzm

After passing on the idea, Vox reportedly used Gold’s episode plan and aired it in 2019 without notifying him or giving him any compensation. The episode was titled “The Next Pandemic,” which was the name of Gold’s pitch. The episode’s description on IMBD includes a note that Gates is one of the people interviewed for the episode, as Gold suggested in his 2018 pitch.
