Justin Bieber v. Joustin’ Beaver Might Be Dead On Technicality
Justin Bieber v. Joustin’ Beaver? Bieber’s legal bout with the mobile app that clearly cashes in on his likeness, and the company’s counter-suit against every 12-year-old girl’s favorite singer, might actually end up in Bieber’s favor on a technicality. The problem? The mobile app company filed its own lawsuit in the wrong state, and now Biebs wants it thrown out entirely.
Bieber’s back-and-forth with RC3 started with Bieber’s demand that the game be pulled ASAP, due to its infringement upon the singer’s likeness. RC3 claims that the game is a parody, placing it under the comfy protection of the U.S. Constitution. But Biebs wants the suit tossed since RC3 filed their counter-suit against him in Florida… a state that Bieber doesn’t live in, reports TMZ.
Though the judge hasn’t yet ruled, it seems to be a clean-cut case for the Boyfriend singer. Gather called the technicality ” so stupid, it’s funny,” opining that, “even a novice attorney should have known enough to check this out.”
If the judge goes with Bieber’s request, the suit will be thrown out, and the melee between the singer and RC3 will pretty much be over in favor of the Biebs. Soon to follow will likely be the demise of “Joustin’ Beaver”, the mobile game at the center of all this controversy.
I’m not really a Bieber fan, but I have to admit. Pretty slick thinkin’ on the little guy’s part.
