According to Royce Mathew, Ann “A.C.” Crispin’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: Price Of Freedom may be infringing on his characters and fictional inventions (such as the eccentric pirate and the pirate ship the Black Pearl) to create a back story for them.
Royce Mathew has sued Disney twice and continues to wait for his day in court. He continues to speak at conventions/college is currently in the process of creating a documentary.
Royce Mathew asserts that Ann “A.C.” Crispin’s involvement in the book deal for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Price Of Freedom, Ann “A.C.” Crispin’s may both be perpetuating and assisting Disney with the theft and exploitation of his creative works. Royce Mathew’s website has documents and photo proof of his fight for accountability.
