Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Sued for Unfair Competition and related State Torts


You can watch the war or you can watch ABC’s “Are You Hot: The Search For America’s Sexiest People.”  Here, via Amlaw.com, is Howard Stern’s complaint alleging that he has acquired secondary meaning in a similar concept on his TV show in which people of undeniable beauty judge those less fortunate than they.  It seems that ABC hired away his executive producer and head writer while negotiating with Stern, so there are theft of trade secrets and tortious interference claims along with the state unfair competition cause.

Here is a website “Hot or Not” in which you can judge others’ appearances.  Here is an application if you wish to be a contestant on “Are You Hot.”  Here is a blurb about another ABC show accused of lack of originality recently.
