Obama uses Japan visit to reassure wary Asian allies
By Linda Sieg and Matt Spetalnick TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama used a state visit to Japan on Thursday to try to reassure Asian allies of his commitment to ramping up U.S. engagement in the region, despite Chinese complaints that his real aim is to contain Beijing's rise. Obama is being treated to a display of pomp and ceremony meant to show that the U.S.-Japan alliance, the main pillar of America's security strategy in Asia, remains solid at a time of rising tensions over growing Chinese assertiveness and North Korean nuclear threats. "As you said, my visit here, I think, once again represents my deep belief that a strong U.S.-Japan relationship is not only good for our countries, but good for the world," Obama told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the start of their summit. "Our shared democratic values mean that we have to work together in multilateral settings to deal with regional hot spots Around the globe, but also to try make sure we are creating a strong set of rules that govern the international order." Behind the scenes, U.S. and Japanese trade negotiators for the two countries were working around the clock in Tokyo on a two-way trade pact seen as crucial to a broader trans-Pacific agreement.

US judge dismisses Tarantino lawsuit against website
A US judge threw out a lawsuit by Quentin Tarantino seeking $1 million from a gossip website for helping leak a screenplay for his latest planned movie. US District Judge John F. Walter said Wednesday that Tarantino had failed to demonstrate "direct infringement" by the Gawker website of his copyright for the script of "The Hateful Eight". The "Pulp Fiction" director announced in January that he had scrapped plans to film the movie as his next project because the screenplay had been leaked. He subsequently filed a lawsuit accusing Gawker Media of "predatory journalism" over the 146-page script.
