It's all reality, right?
LOS ANGELES -- A judge refused to dismiss a copyright infringement lawsuit against the Fox network, rejecting Fox's contention its "Boot Camp" reality show differs from CBS' "Survivor" because it's not rigged.
Even if the outcome of "Survivor" is found to have been manipulated, CBS still has the right to protect its show from being copied, U.S. District Judge Lourdes Baird said in a ruling released late last week. CBS sued Fox, charging that "Boot Camp" copied "Survivor's" idea of putting contestants in harsh conditions andvoting members out. Fox denies copying the show.
