Yoko Ono Copyright Suit Expelled from Federal Court

Update: Download the US District Court ruling here. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog has more on the story.

According to the Associated Press:

Yoko Ono has lost her Manhattan legal battle to block the use of John Lennon's song "Imagine" in a film challenging the theory of evolution.
EMI still has a state level suit in New York against Premise Media for the inclusion of Imagine in Expelled, and no word yet when that might be resolved one way or the other. Premise now looks north with plans to launch Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed nationwide in Canada later this month.
