What happens when a photographer and her lawyers lose all sense of reality?

The photographer’s case pressing spurious copyright claims gets thrown out of court.

An apparently litigation-happy photographer thought a competitor’s images looked too much like her own.  Unfortunately, for her case, they looked nothing alike, leading the judge to publicly rebuke the Plaintiff and her attorneys:

One might have hoped that Plaintiff – an artist – would have understood as much, or that her attorneys, presumably familiar with the basic tenets of copyright and intellectual property law, would have recognized the futility of this action before embarking on a long, costly, and ultimately wasteful course of litigation in a court of law.

TechDirt has a nice run down of the case.
