© nerds: Teller (of Penn & Teller) wins suit, court finds Shadows trick to be copyrightable dramatic work or pantomime.
Teller is widely known as a great magician, but he has just pulled off a feat that is without equal among his peers. He has prevailed in a lawsuit against another magician who put up a copycat illusion on YouTube. Technically speaking, magic tricks aren't copyrightable. In a ruling by a Nevada federal court on Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Mahan states that explicitly.

© nerds: Moby sued over music sample he used 22 years ago.
VMG Salsoul, a New York-based disco and funk record label, is attempting to once again rewind the clock to a time when sampling might have been a more legally-loose endeavor. Just four months after losing a lawsuit over Madonna's "Vogue," Salsoul has picked a new target -- Moby, alleged to have included improper samples on his 1992 songs, "Next is the E" and "Thousand."
