Read Alison Hope Weiner's New York Times piece on lawyer John Marder and his attempts to sue major studios for the notion of "idea theft", based on the case of Grosso v. Miramax (383 F.3d 965 (2004)). In addition to the Grosso case, other current lawsuits involving movies or shows involving "idea theft" include Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance".
