Groove Coverage forced to turn over 50% of royalties

Per Gessle's lawyers have certainly been busy lately. In two cases related to copyright infringement, decisions have been reached:

Gessle vs. Groove Coverage

  An agreement have been made by above parties which means that Groove Coverage will have to turn over 50% of their royalties and publishing income for their song "God Is A Girl" because of copyright infrigement of the Gessle-penned song "Jefferson."

  "It's something that the efficient ears on the Daily Roxette spotted some time ago," credits Gessle's manager, Marie Dimberg. A Daily Roxette discussion topic, started by TDR reader "jobarth," pointed out the similarities.

Malmstedt vs. Gessle

  Malmstedt's accusations against Per Gessle at the English court finally came to an end yesterday when yet another judge dismissed Malmstedt's claim for appeal. "This is not over, there are other ways," Malmstedt commented.
