Yoko Ono’s lawsuit went nowhere in Judge Sidney Stein’s courtroom. The judge ruled that “Expelled”‘s brief use of the John Lennon song, “Imagine”, was permitted under “fair use” exceptions to copyright law. [Update: It appears that the ruling was just on the preliminary injunction, which is now lifted. The full case is still pending.]
Hopefully other judges elsewhere will be on that same wavelength when it comes to people criticizing snippets of “Expelled” in video segments.
