Following the IPKat's earlier posting, two ex-members of defunct popular beat combo "Busted" have, according to reports originating from the British Broadcasting Corporation, lost their case at the High Court relating to royalty payments they had claimed were due to them.

Ki McPhail and Owen Doyle claimed that they wrote certain songs with James Bourne and Matt Willis before they were ejected from the group in October 2001. The judge, Mr Justice Morgan, did not however view their claims as being well founded, stating that the claimants had "convinced himself that his reconstructed version of events really happened" and that Doyle "was not a reliable witness either".

It remains to be see whether McPhail and Doyle will appeal.

Update (11 June): The judgment is now available online here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
