by | Jan 1, 1979

Abkco Music files a copyright infringement suit against M.E.D.A. (Media Home Entertainment), claiming a videocassette entitled The Rolling Stones in Concert includes music that wasn’t licensed. The judge issues a writ of seizure order for all masters and videocassette copies. This marks the very first time where a music company sought legal action against a home video distributor.
