PRS For Music Injunction Against Vince Power Dismissed

LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Mean Fiddler Promoter Vince Power managed a reprieve after the High Court set aside an injunction banning him from producing live events.

Power had been brought to court earlier this year by PRS for Music, who alleged that Power did not have approved copyright for the music played at the Hop Farm festivals from 2009 and 2012.

In a statement released on the matter, a spokesperson for Power said:

"PRS wrongly claimed that Hop Farm did not have copyright to play live music at the events between 2009 and 2012."

"PRS also wrongly claimed that it had obtained an injunction banning Vince from staging musical events. It had not – the order simply required him to pay licence fees in order to stage events and that is the law anyway."

According to Music Week, the ruling last week PRS was said to have agreed to the dismissal of the injunction, as well as the cost awards. – Staff Writers
