Tiseo Architects, Inc v. B & B Pools Serv. & Supply Co., 06-1819
In a suit alleging that an architect copied another architect's design and site plan drawings, judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly analyzed the similarity of the works after filtering out the unprotectable elements of the original drawings; and 2) plaintiff's Lanham Act claim failed because it merely paralleled the copyright claim.
