Injunctions? Merits? Hangover?
For those of you anxiously awaiting the opening of the movie Hangover 2, there is some civ pro-oriented entertainment to keep us occupied in the meantime. In the movie, Ed Helms' character wakes up in Bangkok with a face tattoo that mirrors Mike Tyson's (who also appears in this film). The artist who designed Tyson's face tattoo sued Warner Brothers for copyright infringement. Although the federal judge refused to grant an injunction which would bar the opening of the movie, he has stated that litigation on the merits can indeed go forward.
