Stella McCartney was honored at the Alice Tully Hall for Lincoln Center’s second annual Corporate Fund gala in New York.

Several star guests had kind words to say about the vegetarian clothing designer but it was a Q & A by comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld that truly put the meat in a celebrity “roast.”

Seinfeld took the opportunity to joke about Stella’s cruelty-free ethics in her fashion collections, which includes not using leather or fur.

“I eat only leather and fur,” he said.

Missy Chase Lapine Jessica Seinfeld And Cookbook Copyrights

The saga continues in the case of The Sneaky Chef author Missy Chase Lapine and Jerry Seinfeld, the New York Daily News reports.

Lapine sued Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica Seinfeld, accusing her of plagiarism, saying Seinfeld’s book, Deceptively Delicious, also about incorporating vegetables in meals that taste good, was a rip off.

After a federal judge said, “No,” Lapine took the case to a Second Circuit Court of Appeal, and argued that a jury should decide if pureed carrots are unique.

The Appellate court has yet to issue a ruling.

When it comes to cookbooks, plagiarism and copyright issues are shady, because recipes generally aren’t copyrightable (although it’s best to always say where you got it or developed it from).

The U.S. Copyright office has this to say about recipes:

“Mere listings of ingredients as in recipes, formulas, compounds, or prescriptions are not subject to copyright protection. However, when a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection.”

Green beans, onions and carrots together as a dish probably isn’t copyrightable.

The song you wrote to put your kids in a trance to eat them that you printed along with the recipe in the cookbook probably is.

Jessica Seinfeld Vegetable Plagiarism: Not Guilty

Who ever thought you could “get legal” with produce?

A judge has thrown out a case against the wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Jessica Seinfeld, by the author of a kids cookbook.

Missy Chase Lapine had alleged that Jessica’s book, Deceptively Delicious: Secrets to Getting Your Kids Eating Good Food, was so highly similar to Lapine’s The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals, Jessica must be plagiarizing!

“We are pleased that the court saw through this sham and dismissed the baseless copyright claim,” Orin Snyder, attorney for the Seinfelds said.

Jerry had joked about the incident on the The Late Show with David Letterman, calling it “vegetable plagiarism.”

The main differences between Jessica’s and Missy’s book, the U.S. court judge Laura Swain ruled, was that Jessica’s is “bright and cheerful, full of different colors and various patterns,” while Missy’s is “a dry, rather text-heavy work.”

Jessica created the book because she and Jerry have a child that’s a picky eater.
