Bridgeport Music, Inc. v. Dimension Films - Wikisource (8112 words)
Finding that No Limit Films had previously been granted an oral synchronization license to use the composition “100 Miles” in the sound track of Hook Up, the district court concluded Bridgeport’s claims against No Limit Films were barred by the unambiguous terms of the Release and Agreement.
No Limit Films moved for summary judgment, arguing (1) that the sample was not protected by copyright law because it was not “original”; and (2) that the sample was legally insubstantial and therefore does not amount to actionable copying under copyright law.
On October 11, 2002, the district court granted summary judgment to No Limit Films on the claims of Bridgeport and Westbound; dismissed with prejudice the claims of Southfield and Nine Records; denied as moot the motion of Bridgeport and Westbound for partial summary judgment on the issue of copyright ownership; and entered final judgment accordingly.
Analysis of the Fractal Surfaces of 2D Thin Films (4491 words)
Films were grown on three different widths of substrates, 500, 1000 and 2000 particles wide, and consisted of between 30 000 and 720 000 particles.
This limit is proportionately much larger for films grown on a 500 particle-long substrate compared with one grown on 2000 particle-long substrate and hence may interfere with attempts to produce an accurate value for the fractal dimension for the film surface.
The length of film surfaces grown on the same substrates were found to vary by up to 30%, however it was found that this variance was not reflected in the fractal dimensions of the film surfaces.
