LOS ANGELES--A complaint was filed by a New York entertainment lawyer, alleging copyright infringement for the use of three songs in the dance revue Forever Tango. Wallace Collins, representing Italian music publisher PaganMusic, filed the complaint against Luis Bravo, Jujamcyn Theaters and the other producers of the hit Broadway play about the evolution of the tango.
The play currently is touring the United States, and will play in Orange and Los Angeles counties this month and next, as previously reported.
The complaint was filed in New York Federal Court, and alleges copyright infringement for the songs “Libertango,” “Adios Nonino” and “Finale.” A temporary restraining order was requested, as well as an injunction against any more performances. Damages sought are reportedly more than $1 million for the New York production as well as touring productions in the United States.
