Ono sues Expelled producers for using Lennon song

Yoko Ono has sued producers of a film starring actor Ben Stein that supports ''intelli- gent design,'' the belief that evolution was intended by an unknown being, claiming it illegally uses a song by ex-Beatle John Lennon.
Premise Media Corp. and Rampant Films didn't obtain a license to use ''Imagine,'' the song by Ono's late husband, in ''Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed,'' released April 18, according to a suit filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
''Defendants have intentionally and willfully used the song without authorization because they knew that they would likely be unable to secure permission,'' Ono, 75, said in the complaint filed along with British record label EMI Group Plc.
