Opposition to motion to dismiss on the ground of lack of subject matter jurisdiction -- in this case, the Copyright Office had actually refused to register plaintiff's work, claiming a lack of originality.

The District Court agreed with us and denied the motion by order dated September 15, 2006. Shortly thereafter the parties entered into a satisfactory confidential settlement.
