Friday Factoid 4.11.14

In February 2014, a federal court ruled in favor of The Simpsons voice artist Hank Azaria and against Leap Year actor Craig Bierko in a copyright suit regarding one of Azaria’s characters, sportscaster Jim Brockmire. The judge ruled that the Brockmire character is copyrighted material owned by Azaria and How to Pictures, Inc. In his complaint, Azaria claimed to Bierko’s false assertion of ownership regarding the Brockmire character caused Azaria to lose a potential movie deal.
