A judge has decided that famed video director David LaChapelle and noted photographer Philip Paulus can, in fact, take Rihanna to court over her "S&M" video.

Just a while back, both gentlemen claimed that Rihanna allegedly plagiarized images and concepts from their work without permission. Though Rihanna has kept pretty quite about the matter, she'll be forced to speak loud and clear on August 10th -- the date a judge set for a conference, according to That Grape Juice.

What does this mean? Who knows, but the legal system will get to the bottom of things, and someone will either have to pay up or shut up...
