[caption id="attachment_3428" align="alignleft" width="99"] Howard Zaharoff[/caption]On April 28, 2016, Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly  newspaper published the article titled "Ex-'View' co-host Hasselbeck survives copyright suit by author". This article explains how Susan Hasset, author of “Living with Celiac Disease”, took Elisabeth Hasselbeck, author of “The G Free Diet” and “Deliciously G Free”, to court accusing her of violating copyright infringement.   U.S. District court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr dismissed the case ruling that the similarities between both books were not pervasive enough. [caption id="attachment_3429" align="alignleft" width="98"] Faith Kasparian[/caption]Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton (Boston) Attorney’s  Howard G. Zaharoff and Faith D. Kasparian are both quoted on the topic of copyright laws related to recipes. Howard explains that point that, “‘There are plenty of things you can borrow or steal that are perfectly lawful’ under copyright law.” Continuing on the topic of recipe infringement, Faith follows up by applauding the judge for drawing the line regarding creativity and additional functional directions for achieving a result.   Read the full article here.
