Peter, Paul & Grdnic

April 21, 1985

As Rick Dees, Henny Youngman and many well-informed comedy writers know, individual jokes and comedy routines are not protectable under copyright law.

Nor can jokes or routines be stolen or, in legal terms, "converted"--and for a very good reason: When it comes to comedy, there is really nothing new or "original" under the sun.
