The Judge found that the Defendant was entitled to a 20% share in the song and in some respects the decision highlights the difficulties in defining when the producer makes a contribution and how significant is this contribution. Bottom line is always try and agree in writing before hand!
Anyway the Judge said this of Mr Smith ( as one would expect)Â
“I found Mr Smith to be a truthful witness, who was frank about the vagueness of his recollection of some of the events from the relevant period in 1998 to 1999 but was otherwise clear about certain fundamental matters which I discuss below.”
Well done Mark!
To listen to the tune….phone Lawdit and get put on hold…..
