Kenny's Instructional Guitar Video
Highest Court S.D. New York
Year Ended 1980
Plaintiffs Film Producer(s)
Defendants Film Distributor(s)
Other Rogers, Kenny
Short Description Parties are producer and distributor of an instructional guitar-playing video, which was developed by Plaintiff but Defendant agreed to distribute. Kenny Rogers, famous musician and fried chicken connoisseur, was used in commercials for the product, which raised the royalties Plaintiff would owe Defendant. While initially Plaintiff was unresponsive and did not account for royalties, Defendant responded by seeking outside distributors and selling Plaintiff's product itself. The court found Defendant in breach; upon Plaintiff's breach, Defendant did not acquire rights to do whatever it wanted with Plaintiff's production, and thus acted inappropriately. - LSW
