Here is an amusing copyright story to being your weekend -- Inmates Accused in Name Copyright Scheme - washingtonpost.com:
The four were indicted Tuesday on allegations that they copyrighted their names, then demanded millions of dollars from prison officials for using the names without authorization.
The indictment alleges that inmates Russell Dean Landers, Clayton Heath Albers, Carl Ervin Batts and Barry Dean Bischof sent demand notices for payment to the warden of the El Reno federal prison and filed liens against his property. They then hired someone to seize his vehicles, freeze his bank accounts and change the locks on his house.
Then, believing the warden's property had been seized, the inmates said they wouldn't return his property unless they were released from prison, according to the indictment.
But the person hired by the inmates turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, said U.S. Attorney John C. Richter.
Very creative. Maybe they can assert copyright ownership of the story when it gets made into a made-for-TV movie.
