Duranguense Bands in Court
Highest Court N.D. Illinois
Year Ended 2007
Plaintiffs Record Label(s)
Defendants Aliados de la Sierra
Other Alacranes Musical
Short Description This lawsuit is between two "duranguense" bands, Plaintiffs being a somewhat well-known group called Alacranes Musical, which means "Musical Scorpions." Defendants, Aliados de la Sierra, are a competing group containing a former vocalist, Sergio Federico, who brought some Alacranes songs to his new band, which boasts a stylized scorpion logo similar to Plaintiffs. Plaintiffs sued, and the court denied all Defendants' motions to dismiss, finding likelihood of confusion and breach of contract claims requiring further fact-finding for proper decision. - LSW
