Open Source Yoga

Some American Yoga teacher, who's set up a franchise of 1300 yoga schools worldwide, is claiming copyright on a sequence of yoga movements and is suing other yoga teachers for infringement. A group called the Open Source Yoga Unity has filed a counter-suit, to be decided this spring. Bizarre story with possible farreaching consequences, nicely set out in this Chicago Tribune article. What's next? Soccer clubs copyrighting a specific playing sequence with IP trained referees delivering swift decisions?

Later: More (previous posts) at boingboing, which has this quote from the Yoga teacher: "Because I have balls like atom bombs, two of them, 100 megatons each. Nobody fucks with me." Some enlighted spirit...
