Hologram USA, along with Musion Das Hologram Limited and Uwe Maass, are suing Twentieth Century Fox and Gracie Films for willful infringement in regards to a Homer Simpson hologram that was used at Comic-Con in July.

According to the lawsuit filed Thursday, “Defendants do not possess a valid license to practice that technology. Such a license may only be provided by Plaintiffs. In spite of their knowledge of Plaintiffs’ rights, the Performance was made anyway.”

The activity in question is the Simpsons Comic-Con panel, during which a hologram of Homer came out onto the stage for a discussion with the show’s creator, Matt Groening, among others. You can watch it below.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages for willful infringement.

Fox had no comment.
