Jonnie Taylor Concert Film Causes Lawsuit
Highest Court N.D. Texas
Year Ended 2002
Plaintiffs Malaco Records
Defendants Film Distributor(s)
Film Producer(s)
Other Taylor, Johnnie
Short Description Plaintiff is the exclusive licensee of Johnnie Taylor's recordings, including any videos made, and Defendant is an outside film company that allegedly contracted with Taylor to film his performances, but the parties themselves never reached an agreement regarding the film. Defendant, without Plaintiff's permission, marketed and distributed the film, "Johnnie Taylor Live at the Longhorn Ballroom," and Plaintiff sued. The court found blatant copyright infringement and irreparable harm, and thus granted Plaintiff's request for an injunction. - LSW
