Evangelists Joel and Victoria Osteen get a temporary reprieve in the copyright suit brought against them by writer of the song “Signaling Through the Flames,” courtesy of every defendant’s best friends, Twobley and Iqbal. The Texas district court granted their motion to dismiss because the plaintiffs failed to allege facts showing that the Osteens had a financial stake in the infringing activity and personally supervised the infringing conduct. The plaintiff was given leave to amend so the Osteens will undoubtedly have to face this issue again.
