Blue Monk

Yesterday, members of the jazz ensemble The Thelonious Monk Quartet (John Ore and Frankie Dunlop) filed suit against Thelonious Monk's record label (and others) for alleged copyright infringement and bootlegging arising from the broadcast of live musical perfomrances of the artists while members of the ensemble.

OTCS imagines the following defense could be fatal to plaintiffs: WORK MADE FOR HIRE! Time will tell...
