No picnic for the "I-POD"

The IPKat says thank you to Deirdre Kilroy (LK Shields, Dublin) for sending him this item from the Irish Times. It concerns the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO), which is suing POD Concerts for €432,741 in alleged outstanding royalties relating to a series of music festivals going back four years, including the Electric Picnic concerts.

Mr Justice Peter Kelly, who adjourned the dispute today for three weeks to see if it can be resolved through mediation, admitted the case to the Commercial Court list but took the prudent course of directing that the total disputed amount be lodged in court, ordering POD Concerts to lodge their defence to the claim within seven days. According to IMRO, this is an acute case of "tomorrow" -- the day when POD Concerts' Mr Reynolds said he'd deal with the outstanding royalties -- simply never coming. "There are two sides to this story" said counsel for the event organisers. Quite so, agreed Kelly J, adding sagely that there were always two sides to every story.

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.
