Al Qaeda Sues Mumbai Terrorists for Infringement

NEW YORK — The Al Qaeda organization has filed papers in a Manhattan court, alleging the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba has infringed upon their intellectual property rights by creating an Al Qaeda-like attack in Mumbai, India, without authorization. 

“We are the designers of this style of terror and mayhem,” said Nabi al-Fazwazu, an attorney for the infamous terrorist organization. “The fact that they think they can pull off a caper like this, identical in substance to an Al-Qaeda attack, without prior approval or compensation, shows the amateur nature of their association.”

Al-Fawazu said they chose to file in this venue because it was the site of their trademarked assault on the World Trade Center.  “We were the authors of the 9/11 attacks,” said al-Fawazu, “and all derivative attacks that are now or may be devised throughout the universe in perpetuity.  All rights reserved.”

In addition to the infringement suit, al-Fazwazu is claiming plagiarism. “They didn’t even give us a ‘Based Upon the Terror of’ credit,” he said.  “They took our concept and passed it off as their own.  It’s downright immoral.”

A living spokesperson for the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists could not be found; the others had no comment.

Although the lawsuit was duly filed, it is unclear whether it will actually go to trial, as a group of federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security swarmed al-Fazwazu and his cohorts as soon as they left the court house.

“We will have our day in court,” shouted al-Fazwazu, as he was shoved into the back of a Humvee.  “Al-Qaeda will pursue every legal avenue to see that justice is served!”
