Chihuly Settlement (UPDATED)

Regina Hackett of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that Dale Chihuly has settled his copyright infringement lawsuit against a former studio assistant. Chihuly says he's tired of litigation: "If I had to do it again, I probably wouldn't. . . . I guess the most important thing I realized is something I probably knew all along. At least among artists, it is best to resolve our differences one on one." I've posted on this dispute several times in the past few months, including here, here, and here.

UPDATE: Or not. Another important lesson learned: don't go to the press too soon. More here; apparently the potential settlement is with only one of the two co-defendants in any case.
