Hasselbeck Copyright Suit Thrown Out (Again)

Author Susan Hassett sued Elisabeth Hasselbeck in 2009, alleging that Hasselbeck had infringed Hassett's copyright by publishing her book, "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide," after Hassett sent a copy of her own book, "Living with Celiac Disease" to Hasselbeck to peruse.

TMZ reports that the most recent suit, which was re-filed by Hassett after her original suit was dismissed based on a technicality, has also been dismissed for lack of evidence proving that Hasselbeck violated Hassett's copyright.  Check out TMZ's full report here.

The above photo is how I imagine Hasselbeck to the news: "I told you I didn't copy that lady's book!"

Nothing better than blogging about a copyright infringement suit while studying copyright for my Intellectual Property final, right?
