Short Description It appears Plaintiff is the Puerto Rican Roy Brown, not the American blues singer, who is here suing a third party for a declaration that certain folk and traditional songs re-recorded by Plaintiff are now in the public domain. Defendant counter-sued for copyright infringement, but the court granted summary judgment for Plaintiff on these claims, holding Defendant has offered no independent evidence of ownership and has merely denied Plaintiff's allegations. - LSW
