A tipster wrote in informing OTCS that a Naxos/Pre-72 case (i.e., state common law copyright infringement of sound recording) HAD been filed against the Expelled defendants (see today's earlier posts). After a little research, OTCS reports the following:
EMI Records Limited; Capitol Records LLC v. Premise Media Corporation LP; C & S Production LP dba Rampant Films; Premise Media Distribution LP; Rocky Mountain Pictures Inc.. Filed 4/22/2008; No. 08-601209.
Complaint asserts common law copyright infringement and unfair competition related to "Imagine." Plaintiff seeks to "curtail" defendants' use. (Does that mean enjoin?) Note that Plaintiffs in this matter are the record labels, rather than the Lennon heirs and Imagine-publisher.
If you have a copy of the complaint, please forward.
