Short Description Christian songwriter known for bringing folk music into Catholic masses sued Andrew Lloyd Webber, alleging that a song in his musical Phantom of the Opera infringed Repp's song "Till You." Webber counterclaimed, asserting "Till You" infringed one of his songs. Childish counterclaim dismissed, and eventually Repp's claims as well. - [This entry is not yet complete or has not been edited/checked.]
