Marouani renounced claims to the RTR in the case of copyright infringement

Маруани отказался от претензий к ВГТРК по делу о нарушении авторских прав

Musician Didier Marouani renounced his claims to the RTR in the case of copyright infringement, said the lawyer of composer Igor Trunov.

“We made the decision to abandon claims to the TV channel “Russia” — said Trunov.

Earlier RTR was announced as a co-defendant in a suit for the first time since the controversial song “tough love” sounded on air of TV channel “Russia”.

“We will continue to argue with the author Popkov, Kirkorov, as a performer and record companies,” — said Trunov.

In early November the leader of the group Space Didier Marouani filed a court action for the collection of 75 million rubles for the violation of his copyright with Philip Kirkorov, claiming that the song “Brutal love,” which was played by Kirkorov, is refining his song “Symphonic Space Dream”. Trunov then reported that the integrated avtozavodskoe, musicological research has established the fact of a partial borrowing by 43.27%; according to him, the claim was submitted to the author of the song “Cruel love” Oleg Popkov, RTR, LLC “Philipp Kirkorov Production”, Sony Music Entertainment and the group of companies “RONEeS”.
