Stomp The Yard, Clements v. Screen Gems, Inc., USDC CD California, In an action for infringement of copyright, the court gives “motion for Summary Judgement, concluding that the defendants charged film” Stomp the Yard “did not violate plaintiff film” Steppin ‘.
Case summary of subsidies in favor of defendants in an action for copyright infringement, alleging that the accused film “Flushed Away” scenario violated copyright claimant for “Critter Island”, concluding that the two works are not substantially similar with respect to any protectable element of the works.

On remand, the district court denied both motions MGA and Mattel Summary Judgement on the issue of infringement of copyright of the first generation of Bratz dolls, and a summary judgment grants to the MGA violation of Mattel’s copyright claim for the most second-generation Bratz dolls, the district court also denied motions from both parties for summary judgment on whether a confidentiality agreement Mattel applied to ideas.

A California judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Screen Gems, makers of the film, “Stomp the Yard”, held it did not violate the plaintiff’s work, Steppin. Although both films students participating in dance competitions, similarities with other accessories, a comparison between the works yard does not meet the law to be “substantially similar”. Not even proof that the defendant had evaluated the work of the plaintiff was sufficient to reduce the burden on the plaintiff to make a deal.

Two weeks later, on December 28, another judge in California dismissed a lawsuit against Dreamworks Flushed Away more. The plaintiff had created a movie, Critter Island, which included talk of cckroaches in a retirement home who supported New York with life above and in the public sewer system. The judge did not find much similarity to the film from Dreamworks, which showed rats to speak in a situation somewhat similar.

The world of fashion, student dancers, and anthropomorphic pests – good ideas but not robbed of speech by law, last month.
