A health expert has settled his lawsuit with Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle website after accusing bosses of copyright infringement.

Charles Platkin alleged staff at Goop.com used his 'Diet Detective' moniker without permission for a column earlier this year (14) and he issued legal proceedings last month (Aug14).

He filed legal papers seeking damages for breach of copyright and an undertaking not to use the name Diet Detective again, but the lawsuit has now been withdrawn, according to the New York Daily News.
