Out of the Woods

Case dismissed.

The creators of a web series about a foul-mouthed teddy bear who likes booze, cigarettes and paying for sex have ended their copyright infringement suit against Seth MacFarlane, Universal Pictures and the producers of the 2012 blockbuster Ted. “The parties hereby stipulate and agree … that this action, and Plaintiff’s Complaint for Copyright Infringement, shall be dismissed in its entirety with prejudice, each side to bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees.” ...

Studios get hit with lawsuits of this type on a regular basis. Seldom do the suits get much (or any) traction. It's difficult to corral and copyright ideas, particularly ones centered around a talking teddy bear.
