Seinfeld cookbook not an illegal copycat

A New York judge has tossed out a cookbook author's claim that comedian Jerry Seinfeld's wife was a culinary copycat when she came out with one of her own. Federal Judge Laura Taylor Swain on Thursday threw out a lawsuit brought against the Seinfeld couple by author Missy Chase Lapine.

The judge said there were many significant differences between Lapine's book and a book written by Jessica Seinfeld. Both books were best-sellers.

She said the marketplace impressions of each book were unlikely to create consumer confusion.

Lapine's book is titled: "The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals." Seinfeld's cookbook is titled: "Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Food."
