Then lets hope that "I am" doesn't ask for copyright from the stuff he 
dictated to Moses....

Why stop there?

"Lawyers today filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of Jewish people
everywhere, vs. Christianity.  They claim that the Christians are 
on their Intellectual Property, known in Christian circles as "The Old
Testatment".  They also seek to prove that the so-called "New Testament" 
is a
derivative work, based upon characters created in the Old Testament, and
thus the exclusive property of the Children of Ahbraham."
