The fun of Intellectual Property Law is that it is never boring, there are always some remarkable cases you never imagined. Like the one of Harold Lloyd Entertainment Inc. This company owns the copyright of the movie Safety Last. This movie is especially known for its famous scene where the actor hangs on the clock-hand.
Harold Lloyd Entertainment now has taken the company Cupecoy Home Fashion Inc. to court. This company makes the clock below, a clock with a man hanging on a clock-hand. According to Harold Lloyd Entertainment this is an unauthorized reproduction of a scene from the movie, i.e. copyright infringement. An interesting case, with potential consequences.
