It turns out Ted was straight outta Seth MacFarlane's twisted head after all!

The Family Guy creator won a big copyright lawsuit on Monday when he proved his rightness so hard, that the other side gave up.

Bengal Mangle Productions sued Fuzzy Door Productions, Media Rights Capital, and Universal Pictures in July over the rights of the teddy bear Ted. They claimed that their character, Charlie, was "a teddy bear who lives in a human, adult world with all human friends. Charlie has a penchant for drinking, smoking, prostitutes, and is a generally vulgar yet humorous character." Sounds like Ted…

But Seth and his people proved the suit was without merit, and the case was dropped. The court docs said:

In a Today show interview Tuesday morning, lawyer Dick DeGuerin stated that he believed L.A. prosecutors who charged Durst with murder "jumped the gun because of the television show."

DeGuerin is arguing that Durst's stunning confession — that he made while speaking to himself in the bathroom while still wearing a live mic — should be ignored! He argued:

Yikes, six felonies?!

It would be best for Justin Bieber to cut ties with Lil Twist, especially since he's hell bent on fixing his current bad boy image!

The Biebs' old friend (real name, Christopher Lynn Moore) is being charged with six felonies for allegedly breaking into former Disney Channel star Kyle Massey's digs last November.

Here's a little refresher: the 22-year-old was reportedly hanging out with a couple of friends in Kyle's apartment before he and his brother Chris kicked them all out.

Justin Bieber's Egging Victim Wants More Money Because The Biebs Tarnished His Good Name

| Filed under: Legal MattersJustin Bieber

no title

You may remember when Justin Bieber egged his neighbor's house, and paid $80,000 in damages. Well, the victim wants more money now!

Jeff Schwartz has told the singer's people to pay him $1 million, or get prepared to go to court because he feels that the incident has tarnished his good name. Jeff works in car sales media software and says now he's just known as the guy Justin Bieber egged and spat on.

And apparently that $1 million will also be reparations for The Biebs verbally abusing his wife and daughter.

Hmm… something doesn't sound quite right here. Didn't they both agree that Jeff was given what was deemed fair?

Justin's camp is of course saying that the majority of Jeff's story isn't true.

Thoughts???

This is horrible!!!

The Westmoreland Mall in Pennsylvania accidentally hired a man to play the Easter Bunny at Cherry Hill Photo, but he was a registered sex offender.

Michael Jacobs was convicted of having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 19, and was charged with assault and rape of a girl under 13, but the case was dropped.

Jacobs spent 12 hours in costume before his history was found out, which is just unthinkable, and was promptly fired.

Ch-ch-check out the report for yourself

T.I. Isn't Worried About Blurred Lines Lawsuit With Marvin Gaye's Family! See What He Had To Say HERE!

Doesn't seem like he thinks he'll end up in the same boat as Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke.

But that doesn't mean T.I. won't have to show up to court to defend himself!

The rapper was recently named in a new lawsuit from Marvin Gaye's family who want the ruling judge to "correct" their decision to include not just Pharrell and Thicke in their Blurred Lines lawsuit but T.I. and all of the music labels involved, as well!

But T.I. recently shared his feelings on being named in this copyright infringement case and it sounds like he's pretty secure in the knowledge that he didn't steal anything and thus does NOT owe anybody anything!
