NBC defeats "Biggest Loser" infringement claim

The television series "The Biggest Loser" does not infringe the copyright to a treatment titled "Phat Farm/Fat Farm – A Weight Loss Adventure," a federal District Court has held. The court found that the NBC series is not substantially similar to the protectible elements of the treatment.

The court's decision is noted by Arent Fox and noted and linked to by Loeb & Loeb.
