What do Caitlyn Jenner, Tom Brady and the Washington Monument have in common? They're all subjects of punchlines Conan O'Brien is accused of ripping off. O'Brien lost an effort to toss out a federal copyright infringement lawsuit in San Diego last week, potentially setting up a novel trial over comic creativity and the value of laughter.Robert Alexander Kaseberg said he posted several jokes online that the late-night comedian repeated almost verbatim later that day or the next on his "Conan" show on TBS.Kaseberg has written for various publications and had more than 1,000 of his jokes told by O'Brien's archrival Jay Leno.Kaseberg tells a joke about the New England Patriots' 2015 Super Bowl victory that followed what was widely considered one of sports history's worst coaching decisions, by the Seattle Seahawks.
