American Idol Simon Fuller

Simon Fuller, the UK-born media mogul behind the massively successful Pop Idol (which ultimately spawned American Idol and the various international variations of the show), has settled a long-standing battle between himself and his production company and the television network Fox and production company FreemantleMedia over copy-write infringement.
