ABSTRACT
A court in Paris, France has rejected a bid for an injunction against selling merchandise for the motion picture "Finding Nemo," ruling that there are no "serious similarities" between the character created by Walt Disney Co./Pixar Co. and a clown fish drawn for a French children's book. The case was brought by lawyer and part-time author Franck Le Calvez, who claims to have written a book about a clown fish called Pierrot about nine years ago.
