Torres on Tuesday approved a motion by Miami-based Timbaland, whose real name is Timothy Mosley, and Nelly Furtado, for summary judgment and refused to allow the Finnish group to seek an overdue copyright and amend its complaint.Can you make it sound even more boring?
"We're very happy," said GrayRobinson partner Karen Stetson, who represents Timbaland. "We thought from the beginning that this issue was an important one and followed the plain language of the federal Copyright Act. But the other side was trying to get away from the plain language of the Copyright Act."Can you make it seem utterly crazy?
Stetson, whose co-counsel was Jonathan Gaines from GrayRobinson, said her client spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on discovery and litigation.Speaking of the music industry and people you’ve never heard of, P.J. Pacifico, whose band used to play in New Haven way back in the day, has a new album out (available on iTunes) that I highly recommend. (Check out his entire oeuvre. You’ll thank me later, as Monk used to say.)
