Man Sues Apple Claiming iPod Causes Hearing Loss

Louisiana man alleges that Apple's iPod is "inherently defective in design and are not sufficiently adorned with adequate warnings regarding the likelihood of hearing loss." (article here).

Admittedly, this is not directly related to IP/Internet Law, however, I believe the iPod phenomenon shares the common nucleus of downloading music, and file sharing, which are one of the subjects of this course.

I'm not sure if Prof. Fairman would agree, but my personal feeling is that this claim has substantially less merit than either of the McLawsuits (Pelman v. McDonald's Corp., 396 F. Supp. 2d 439 (S.D.N.Y. 2005), and the other one with the hot coffee); so, I'd probably have to say it's frivolous.
