We've blogged about Bikram the yogi blowhard before -- Mr. Choudhury has been making headlines over efforts to enforce copyright on a popular style of yoga he claims to have invented. He's been threatening to sue folks who teach them without permission (or licensing fees).
Now there are reports that a group called "Open Source Yoga Unity" has filed a suit in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, asking the judge to declare that Bikram cannot use his copyrights to stop others from practicing or teaching the Bikram sequence of poses.
Apart from the Bikram pose sequence, Mr. Chodhury is also famous for having uttered these words:
"Because I have balls like atom bombs, two of them, 100 megatons each. Nobody fucks with me."
