Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

Question: I'm not going to sugarcoat it: My neighbors are complete asses. This holiday season, can I put up lights shaped like a giant hand giving all of them "the finger?"

Answer: Sorry, but your proposed light display is likely in violation of state obscenity laws. (Daily Mail, Police force woman to take down middle-finger Christmas lights she set up as message to her neighbors)

Question: I am on my deathbed. Who will inherit my iTunes library upon my death?

Answer: Ownership of digital assets such as iTunes songs remains a very unclear "legal black hole," unfortunately. (The Wall Street Journal MarketWatch, Who inherits your iTunes library?)

Question: I am a police officer. Some fool fell off of a building during a summer music festival and landed right on me, fracturing my neck. Can I charge him with something?

Answer: Disorderly conduct. And really bad luck. (The Associated Press, Man charged with falling off building onto officer)
