Sneaky Chef Cookbook Author loses lawsuit against Ms. Seinfeld.

The lawsuit brought by Missy Chase Lapine against the wife of Jerry Seinfeld has been resolved in favor of Jessica Seinfeld.   The lawsuit contained allegations of  Copyright Infringement, Lanham Act Trademark Infringement and Injury to Business Reputations.

Of note, the court ruled that the cookbooks were not substantially similar. The court noted that Lapine’s book was rather dry and text heavy.  The Seinfeld book appeared to be directed to a different audience.  

I have reviewed and cooked from both books and I agree with the courts decision.
