Expelled’ Plaintiffs Drop Suits. . . And Win?
Lecturer in Law and Director of the Fair Use Project Anthony Falzone is quoted in The Wall Street Journal Law Blog in an article about Yoko Ono and EMI Records dropping the lawsuit that had been filed against Premise Media over copyright infringement of the John Lennon song "Imagine":
... Premise’s lawyer, Stanford’s Tony Falzone, writes on his blog, “the right result came far too late. The mere pendency of these cases caused the film’s DVD distributor to shy away from releasing the full film — the version that includes the Imagine segment. So the film goes out on DVD on October 21 in censored form, illustrating the damage that even an unproved and unsupported infringement claim can do.”
