Not-So-Noble Savage: Court Dismisses Michael Savage’s Lawsuit Against Islamic Group

In an earlier blog, we discussed a clearly meritless lawsuit by rabid radio take show host Michael Savage, here. A federal judge in San Francisco dismissed the conservative commentator’s lawsuit against Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, for copyright infringement.

Savage sued CAIR when it used parts of his show after he called the Quran a “book of hate.” In true Savage fashion, his lawyers used the lawsuit to rave about the group as being tied to terrorism and not a real civil rights organization.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston made fast work of the complaint in dismissing it. Undeterred, Savage’s attorney, Daniel Horowitz, says that they will refile. Hopefully, a new filing will allow CAIR to secure Rule 11 sanctions if Savage continues to use the court as an extension of his hateful rants.

In the meantime, Savage’s latest outrage was his attack on kids with autism, here.

  1. Earth to martha h:

    In your 6:21 pm posting (above) of July 26, 2008, you reproduced snippets from a copyrighted AP story.

    Do you not realize that you did exactly the same thing that CAIR did?

    You are allowed to reproduce snippets of copyrighted material under the “Fair Use” Doctrine. Had Savage’s lawsuits prevailed, both you and CAIR would in the future NOT be allowed to do that.

  2. I’m telling you, she’s a liar or plain stupid. In one of her insane posts she claimed that Islam had a Prophet in 1300 AD. Like I responded there, either she just makes up propaganda, is demented enough to believe her own lies or is simply stupid.

    LOL

  4. On July 26, 2008 at 6:21 pm, BARTLEBEE asked martha h if she expected people to print an entire book instead of copying and pasting, as she complained CAIR unfairly did with Savage’s copyrighted material.

    It seems as though entire reproductions of one’s copyrighted works would be the ONLY way one to satisfy those who claim that reproducing snippets takes them out of context. But the problem there is that complete reproductions are piracy! And piracy is — and should be — illegal.

    That is one of the reasons why the “Fair Use” Doctrine allows one to reproduce sections of copyrighted material. And by its very nature, limited reprodutions will always be out-of-context. But it isn’t as if Savage is without a bully pulpit in order to correct any misunderstandings that may arise out when a party, like CAIR, allegedly takes him out of context; Savage can pontificate to the 8 million listeners he claims he has for 5 hours a day, 5 days a week in order to set the record straight. We should all be so lucky to have such means at our disposal to counteract those whom we feel misrepresent us during the cut and thrust of political debate. Savage also has his website to use for this purpose as well, which he claims has millions of hits per month.

  5. Michael Savage (actual name Weiner), ironically Weiner Nation would be a more appropriate name for his show, is a Zionist Jew who hates, Muslims, Hispanics, autistic children, homos, the Catholic Church…

    I don’t know why martha and bb were even arguing, they were both on the same medication. If they were any more closely related, they could have been married at their trailer park.
