Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: My wife and I live in New Zealand, and we are expecting our first child shortly! Can we name the baby "Anal"?

Answer: The New Zealand Internal Affairs Department says no. It is also a "no" for the names Mafia No Fear, V8 and the symbol *. But the names Violence, Chardonnay and Number 16 Bus Shelter are all available to you. (NewsCore, What's in a name? New Zealand babies know)

2) Question: I and many other members of the "Michael Jackson Community" remain distraught over the King of Pop's death. Can we sue Michael's doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, for our emotional damages?

Answer: About 100 of your fellow community members are trying to do just that now in France. Keep an eye on that case. (AFP, French Fans Sue Michael Jackson's Doctor Over Emotional Damage)

3) Question: I view information as holy, and copying and file sharing as sacred acts akin to prayer. Are there any countries in this world that will accept my beliefs as an official religion? 

Answer: Sweden. (The Hollywood ReporterSweden Recognizes File-Sharing as a Religion)
