Chihuly Lawsuit Settled

From the Seattle Times this morning:

"Glass artist Dale Chihuly and a rival artist he sued for copyright violations announced Monday that they have settled their 14-month-old court battle .... In a terse announcement Monday afternoon, Chihuly and Redmond glass artist/entrepreneur Robert Kaindl announced that their dispute 'has been resolved to their mutual satisfaction.' Neither side would discuss the settlement or claim victory. But the art works being offered on Kaindl's Web sites — including styles disputed in the suit — remain unchanged."

Chihuly had settled with the other of the two defendants -- one of his former studio assistants -- over the summer.
