Copyright society loses Elton John concert royalties action

11:53 06/06/2012

MOSCOW, June 6 - RAPSI. The Moscow District Federal Commercial Court has upheld the appeals court judgment allowing a concert agency to keep from paying royalties to the Russian Copyright Society for an Elton John's concert, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com).

The concert agency sought to have its contract with the society declared null and void as it had no specific subject - it did not contain a list of songs for which a temporary license is required.

However, Elton John only played his own copyrighted songs at the concert. The plaintiff holds that the contract was signed in case the singer performed songs written by other musicians.

The court terminated the proceedings after the agency dropped its other claims with regard to the society - to enter into a royalty agreement on the plaintiff's terms and consent to the public performance of songs already released.
