Fresh off their victory in their lawsuit against SIRIUSXM RADIO, THE TURTLES -- MARK VOLMAN and HOWARD KAYLAN, also known as FLO AND EDDIE -- have filed a class action lawsuit against PANDORA, alleging the same violation of state copyright protection for pre-1972 recordings, reports THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. The suit was filed in CALIFORNIA, where U.S. District Judge PHILIP GUTIERREZ granted summary judgment for the plaintiffs in the SIRIUSXM case.
The PANDORA suit seeks at least $25 million for unpaid royalties.
