Lady Gaga freed from music lawsuit

Lady Gaga has had a copyright lawsuit against her dropped.

Chicago songwriter Rebecca Francescatti filed the suit in 2011 accusing Gaga of copying her music and stealing the title lyric from her 1998 song Juda. Gaga’s 2011 song is called Judas.

Federal Judge Marvin Aspen ruled this week that the songs do not have common lyrics, have different themes and sound nothing alike musically.

The judge also concluded there wasn’t enough evidence that Gaga could have heard or known about Francescatti’s song before publishing Judas.

Dismissing the lawsuit, Aspen said the songs ‘‘are so utterly dissimilar that reasonable minds could not differ as to a lack of substantial similarity between them.’’

True Blood - The Musical in the works

Like the vampires it portrays, True Blood just won’t die.Even if it means breaking out in song.

After the final scene of the upcoming last season, fans may be able to take another fresh bite out of the HBO vampire drama.In the works: True Blood: The Musical. Seriously.

‘‘This was something that I pitched to HBO and (show creator) Alan Ball,’’ composer Nathan Barr said at this week’s True Blood season premiere in Hollywood.

Barr has written the instrumental scores for the series’ entire seven seasons, the last of which debuts in the US on Sunday.Barr said the musical will revolve around protagonist, telepath and waitress Sookie Stackhouse, portrayed in the series by Anna Paquin.

But, Barr added, after seven seasons of twists, turns and characters for Sookie, it’s proven a challenge to trim the saga down.‘‘I think we’re really going to try to return to the roots of the show,’’ he said.

True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, who showed off his vocal chops last year on NBC’s highly rated live telecast of The Sound of Music, revealed he helped Barr put together some samples of the True Blood musical presented to HBO and Ball.

Barr said he hopes to present a workshop version about a year from now, but he’s not looking beyond that.

To say this is ‘‘Broadway bound’’ is premature.‘‘There’s no guarantees,’’ the composer warned. ‘‘But I think the direction we’re heading in is really exciting.’’
