    Aw. Even his pots of money couldn't give the Badger-Haired One a win this time. I bet Lucas was kicking furniture over and screaming 'But I threw money at it! Why didn't I win!? I throw cash at things and I normally always win!'.

    I read this on the BBC earlier. I think it's a little more in-depth. BBC News - Lucas loses Star Wars copyright case at Supreme Court

    I'd tend to side with the suitmaker on this one. More in terms of who's the goodie and who's the baddie, than any legal principles.

    I think Lucas definitely had a strong case, and I can see how the helmet design could be considered as a form of artwork. It's just very hard to be sympathetic to old neck-beard. It just seems unbelievably petty for a billionaire to set out to ruin a guy like that. He would've been saddled with a massive and unpayable debt for the rest of his life if he'd lost. Such worries are alien to Lucas.

    "But if I don't get royalties from it then I can't add it to the giant pile of money that I couldn't possibly use in a lifetime!"

    That, and Joe Johnston can finally be able to give us a Boba Fett movie.
