30 Suspiciously Similar TV Shows Accused Of Ripping Off Another Series
The Glass House
In 2012, when ABC was about to premiere their reality series, The Glass House, CBS was not happy. They sued the network and tried to prevent it from airing because they believed that it was an exact copy of their reality show, Big Brother. Both shows were about a group of contestants who lived in a home that was rigged with cameras. They all faced challenges and had to avoid weekly evictions in order to win a cash prize.
CBS sued for copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, breach of contract and more. However, the case against ABC was dropped.
