Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. v. Hendrixlicensing.com, LTD, USDC W.D. Washington, February 8, 2011

• In a case regarding Jimi Hendrix’s right of publicity, the court found that the choice-of-law provisions of the Washington Personality Rights Act directing the application of Washington law regardless of the law of the domicile of the individual at the time of death was arbitrary and unfair, and declared the provisions unconstitutional.

Zamoyski v. Fifty-Six Hope Road Music Limited, Inc., USDC D. Massachusetts, February 4, 2011

• Court awards attorney’s fees to counter-claim plaintiffs, but reduces their requested amount by 45% because counterclaim defendant’s claim was not frivolous, there is no need for deterrence, and to reflect the apportionment of copyright and non-copyright claims.
