Judge Tosses Playboy's Lawsuit Over Links to Centerfold Photos

Story :

Playboy in November sued Happy Mutants, claiming the company's site Boing Boing infringed its rights by linking to "Every Playboy Playmate Centerfold Ever."

"Some wonderful person uploaded scans of every Playboy Playmate centerfold to imgur," states the Feb. 29, 2016, post on Boing Boing. "It's an amazing collection, whether your interests are prurient or lofty. Kind of amazing to see how our standards of hotness, and the art of commercial erotic photography, have changed over time."

Boing Boing then linked to the imgur collection and a YouTube video, both of which appear to have since been removed.

U.S. District Judge Fernando Olguin on Wednesday dismissed Playboy's complaint with leave to amend, asking the magazine to carefully evaluate the contentions made in Happy Mutants' motion to dismiss before drafting a second amended complaint.
