Paramount Pictures and its Chinese partners, which participated in the creation of the fantastic movie "Transformers 4: Age of Extinction", were fined two million yuan (about $ 300,000) for violating the terms of a contract with the travel company Wulong Karst Tourism. According to the South China Morning Post, this decision was made by a Chinese court.
Under the terms of the agreement of the parties, the logo of the company, which invested about 750 thousand dollars in the creation of "Transformers 4", was supposed to appear in the picture, but this did not happen. The defendants admitted the fact that there was no logo, but told the court that they considered their obligations fulfilled, since the director of "Transformers 4" Michael Bay shot a commercial for this travel company, and also left part of the scenery in the national park, which is managed by Wulong Karst Tourism, for attracting tourists. The court did not take these arguments into account and ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, but reduced the compensation claimed by the plaintiffs by almost a hundred times.
Recall that the fourth series of "Transformers" enjoyed great success in China. It grossed more than $ 300 million at the national box office, and overall the movie grossed over $ 1.1 billion.
