Justin Bieber v. Joustin’ Beaver

Justin Bieber v. Joustin’ Beaver

Not content with being just the public face of copyright reform, the Biebs has moved on to First Amendment issues.  Specifically, the singer’s attorneys sent RC3, a maker of Android apps, a cease-and-desist letter two weeks ago that threatened legal action if the company did not cease distribution of its Joustin’ Beaver game.  Now RC3 has filed a preemptive lawsuit claiming its First Amendment right of free speech in distributing the game trumps any trademark or publicity rights claims Bieber might have.
