Expelled sued

Yoko Ono, Julian Lennon and Sean Lennon have sued the makers of the creationist propaganda movie Expelled for their use of a portion of ‘Imagine’ without permission.

Ono, her son Sean Ono Lennon, and Julian Lennon, John Lennon’s son from his first marriage, along with privately held publisher EMI Blackwood Music Inc filed suit in U.S. District Court in Manhattan seeking to bar the filmmakers and their distributors from continuing to use “Imagine” in the movie.

They are also seeking unspecified damages.

It’s one thing to steal from Harvard or a small medical start-up company. It’s quite another matter to cross Yoko. So will the Expelled people try to spin this as more oppression by “Big Science”?

  1. Ah, it’s a free speech issue and the right to “fair use” of a short clip with the words “imagine no religion” shown on screen under images of Stalin and marching communist Chinese troops to, um, comment, um satirize, um put over anti-science lies? Bueller? Bueller?
