Friday Links

Well, as you might recall, in last week’s edition of Friday Links, we mentioned that we would be focusing on legal themed album covers for a while, as it’s getting more and more difficult to unearth legally themed comic book covers. (Fear not, dear readers, we’ll return to comic book covers on Fridays in the not too distant future.). Today, we direct you to the cover of the single of “Judge, Jury, and Executioner” by Atoms for Peace, released not so long ago in 2013. You can’t get more legally themed than that, now can you? Atoms for Peace is a supergroup of sorts featuring Radiohead’s lead singer Thom Yorke and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist Flea. By the way, on this law blog, we’ve apparently mentioned Radiohead not once but six times before: here, here, here, here, here, and here. With us tossing out occasional references to such hip music, our indie street cred is surely preserved and you are estopped to argue otherwise, dear readers.

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino’s latest script leaked onto the Internet. The Hollywood Reporter asks: “Does Quentin Tarantino have a Case Against Gawker?” Follow up: Can we still sue him for Four Rooms, or has the statute run?

Thanks again to Tim Pratt for his guest editorial on the proposed revisions to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. We published that yesterday, and if you missed, click here. Oh, and you can follow Tim on Twitter here.

We understand that the law of aviation is complicated and full of nuances. We understand that the federal government maintains a compelling interest in ensuring the uniformity of such regulations. We understand that there are legitimate privacy concerns about the use of drones in our airspace. But, even considering all of that, we were crestfallen to read this story: “FAA Stops Beer Drone Delivery.” Come on, FAA!

By the way, the SiouxsieLaw blog offers some initial thoughts on the purported “Cessation of Touring” agreement Motley Crüe is using to promoting its purported “Final Tour.” Says the writer: “While I admire the steps the Crüe have taken to end their band, I don’t exactly get it.  The four of them could just decide to rip up their agreement at any time and start touring again. It’s like four college girls agreeing to go on a diet together and putting it in writing.  You know eventually one of them is going to bring ice cream back to the sorority house.  And then after consuming the ice cream, they will collectively wipe their mouths with their binding agreement.” We’ll be weighing in on that fateful contract some time next week. How could we not?
