Finally, the Court should also order Plaintiffs to include in their response an explanation of how each allegedly copied literal and/or non-literal element comprises original, protectable expression, and how the element allegedly supports their claim that there is "substantial similarity" between the Harvard Connection and www.thefacebook.com websites.
