Law buzz this morning...

  • There's a lot of legal work that goes into pulling off a music concert. Case in point: Dr. Dre and city of Detroit have been arguing more than a decade about the hip hop star's 2000 "Up in Smoke" tour, which caused controversy thanks to violent and sexual images the city deemed inappropriate and a violation of local ordinances. Footage of a backstage confrontation with three Detroit city officials made its way onto a concert DVD, which led to an invasion of privacy lawsuit against Dre. The case is about to go before the Michigan Supreme Court. [LASIS]
  • Speaking of privacy, Mark Zuckerberg has obtained a restraining order against a man allegedly stalking him on Facebook and in real life. [TMZ]
  • Sony is threatening to sue anybody who posts the jailbreak code for PlayStation 3 and is asking a federal judge to order Google to turn over identifying IP addresses. [Wired]
