Mit Ben Hur wird die erste Adaption des gleichnamigen Romans von Lew Wallace uraufgeführt. Der Regisseur Sidney Olcott wird später vom Autor erfolgreich wegen Verletzung des Urheberrechts verklagt. Damit ändert sich die rechtliche Grundlage der Verfilmung von literarischen Vorlagen. In der Folge müssen Filmemacher auch die Rechte an dem Stoff erwerben, den sie verfilmen.
