Hannah Montana Co-Creator is Demanding His Royalties Percentage

Michael Poryes, co-creator of the Hannah Montana character which has brought in billions for Disney, says he is entitled to a percentage of the bank brought in by the books, movies and merchandise.

Poryes is suing using intellectual property law for almost $1 million dollars for compensatory damages, punitive damages, court costs and of course interest.

Disney at this time does not have any comment.
