Thread Name: Copyright Infringements
Subject: RE: Copyright Infringements
UNfortunately, it is not as uncommon as you might think. We don't hear alot about it because normally, these things are settled by lawyers without seeing the inside of a court room. It doesn't only happen in music. For example, Former senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson was sued by Adolf Hitler for copyright infringement for translating Mein Kampf without Hitler's permission. Hitler won the suit. I forget exactly what the settlement was and it may have been settled out of court but it did happen. Kindest regurds and hopefully we'll hear more from you. Neil
