Eric Clapton He chases after a woman who tries to catch a hawk on one of his CDs – a bootleg one, no less – for about $ 11 … and now he wins, which means he has to pay more than that.
German wave A verdict in Clapton’s favor was filed earlier this week in a court in the Dசsseldorf area of Germany. There he sued the 55-year-old widow – arguing that she did not know if it was a forgery or a violation of her copyright.
The woman reportedly tried to sell it for less than $ 12 on eBay – something Eric and his crew somehow managed to catch the wind and fight the teeth and nails.
The word is, they approached this woman … she demanded to remove the eBay sale – but the word was, she told Eric and Gov. Stop kicking rocks and harassing her. Defender She said if they were worried about the $ 11 sale, go ahead and sue him.
Well, he sued her … and after her ignorant arguments fell flat on the court following the appeal – she issued a restraining order preventing her from hawking the matter. She also has to pay legal fees from both parties, which is reportedly about $ 3,800. If she keeps it on eBay, she could face hundreds of thousands of fines … or even half a year in prison.
Clapton’s team told the Guardian, “Germany is high on piracy and the sale of counterfeit CDs, damaging the industry and its customers with poor quality and misreporting records. Bootleg has successfully pursued hundreds of cases. “
The woman told some sales outlets that she would like to appeal the decision again.
