As you all remember, Jack Urbont obtained a default judgment against Ghostface Killah in his copyright case involving his "Iron Man Theme." On January 20, he moved for summary judgment against the remaining defendants Sony Music Etnertainment and Razor Sharp Records.
The brief itself isn't exactly a riveting read and now that GFK isn't involved the matter isn't quite as entertaining (at least for me). But I plan to see this thing through to a final judgment for the sake of completeness. Somewhat entertaining was this piece of a transcript from the deposition of one of Sony's in-house lawyers:
Seems unlikely to me that anyone in the music business doesn't know the RZA's real name, especially in light of the fact that the RZA has the production credit for "Intro" and "Iron's Theme - Conclusion," the songs from "Supreme Clientele" at issue in this case. And he's named in Urbont's Rule 26 initial disclosures. But who would pay attention to stuff like that?
Up next: the defendants' responsive brief! I suspect their legal maneuvering will not be mere child's play.
