Apparently Sony had not sought permission to include this quote from Requiem for a Nun, which contains the statement "The past is never dead. It's not even past.” Therefore, the owners of the rights to the book decided to file a lawsuit, claiming copyright infringement, commercial appropriation and violation of the Lanham Act.

It's not even past."

"At least when it comes
to certain outfits I have to wear"
