Members of Eagles Sue Fan Over Unlicensed Concert Screenings
The Eagles aren't going to take it easy when it comes to unlicensed screenings of their music.
Members of the Eagles are taking a fan to court over 10,000 hours of music footage. Co-founders Glenn Frey and Don Henley filed the suit against William Shelley, a Long Island man who hosted a series of public screenings from his collection of unreleased concert performances by the Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and the Eagles.
According to the lawsuit, Shelley refused to honor a cease-and-desist order prior to the screening. The lawsuit charges Shelley is guilty of copyright and anti-bootlegging laws. Henley and Frey aren't just seeking to get back their footage, but also take possession of his entire collection.
