BMI sues bar in Shakopee, alleging copyright infringement

November 8, 2011

Music-licensing company BMI today filed its third copyright-infringement case this month, again alleging a Minnesota establishment has permitted popular music to be performed without paying for the right to do so.

The bar in question is the Pullman Club in Shakopee.  The complaint and an exhibit filed in federal court in Minnesota allege the establishment did not pay for the right to perform Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison, Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash, Rocket Man by Elton John, and three songs attributed to Mick Jagger and Keith Richard:  Honky Tonk Women, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, and Paint It Black.  The alleged copyright infringement occurred Sept. 10, 2011.

As I posted previously, earlier this month BMI filed lawsuits alleging copyright infringement at establishments in Anoka and Jordan.

    Too many little kids. It anoyns me to see them crap out on small issues of not hard work that they call hard work. It’s good that they have enthusiasm though.

  3. I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s impressing me! 🙂

  4. What I find so interesting is you could never find this anywhere else.
