Kryoman

There Can Be Only One

Giant Electronic Robot

1/1/2012 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kryoman
Kryoman -- the popular club music icon who dances on stage in an electronic suit -- claims another act has stolen his trademark outfit ... and he's filed a new lawsuit to establish giant lighted robot supremacy!

According to a lawsuit filed this week in Florida, Andrew Moore began performing in the Kryoman in 2005. He claims he copyrighted the suit -- which is described in the lawsuit as being "9 feet tall, covered in color-changing lights, wielding a gun in each hand."

Moore claims he built up quite a reputation as Kryoman, performing with the likes of David Guetta, the Black Eyed Peas and Nicki Minaj.

According to the lawsuit, Moore claims Dayglow -- a company that stages electronic music parties all over the world -- approached him about appearing at one of their shows in Miami. Moore says he declined.

Moore claims Dayglow than did "nothing more than construct a replica of the Kryoman suit" and began using it at their shows (see below, taken from a video shot from a video in July).

Moore is suing for copyright infringement and is asking for damages -- plus $30,000 per violation if the court feels Dayglow did it by accident ... and $150,000 if they feel Dayglow "willfully infringed Moore's copyright."

Calls to Dayglow were not returned.

I see no similarity in the suits besides the fact they have lights on them. No patterns or designs are being copied.

And if this Mr. Kryoman thinks he's the first person to make a light-covered costume, he's sadly mistaken. There are dozens of Japanese Mecha Kaiju movies from the 1970's that prove otherwise.

Someone commented about Rabbit in the Moon, but an even more equal comparison would be DJ Paladin 5.0 from Toronto. He's been sporting a VERY similar suit since the early 90's.

Just to let you know theres the globots and more in the UK that are pretty amazing and been around for awhile. Are they going to get sued too. Everybody copies everybody. Nothing is original. Just because nobody in America knows about them or seen them, doesn't mean they weren't copied as well. Just because you might be one of the first people to do it in florida, doesnt mean you were the first. I guess we should all start suing each other, cause there's a lot of copied acts from all over the world.
