  • Prince遺產管理小組對歐洲盜版網絡提出訴訟

      201810/0809:20
    ◎Prince的遺產管理小組對其所稱的一個在世界各地銷售Prince的音樂,包括他的最後一場演唱會的歐洲盜版網絡提出訴訟。該訴訟已提交給美國明尼蘇達州的聯邦法院,訴訟中聲稱,在法國、比利時和荷蘭的被告未獲得授權就出售Prince未發行的錄音室錄音作品和他的現場表演的盜版錄音。

    ◎星際論壇報報導說,這些音樂包括Prince在2016年因服用吩坦尼止痛藥過量而意外過世的前一週在亞特蘭大演出的演唱會。被告沒有立即回覆該報徵求對於該訴訟有何看法的簡訊;法庭的記錄中沒有為他們列出律師的名字。

    ◎該訴訟為每一個註冊商標的違規行為各尋求200萬美元的賠償。一位沒有參與此案的明尼亞波利斯市版權律師Mike Sherrill表示,獲得賠償的可能性很小。

    詳細全文:

    Prince's estate is suing what it says it a European piracy network that is selling his music around the world, including his final concert.

    The lawsuit filed in federal court in Minnesota last week alleges that defendants in France, Belgium and the Netherlands are selling unreleased studio recordings and bootlegged recordings of his live performances without permission.

    The Star Tribune reports that the music includes the concert Prince gave in Atlanta a week before he died in 2016 of an accidental fentanyl overdose. The defendants didn't immediately reply to the newspaper's messages seeking comment. Court records don't list attorneys for them.

    The lawsuit seeks $2 million for each trademark violation.

    Mike Sherrill, a Minneapolis copyright attorney not involved in the case, says chances of collecting are slim.
