CONTRACTS

A4520-1-K: BREACH OF CONTRACT AND COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Client, a rap artist, has been creating music based on his life experiences for about five years. Client entered into a one-year contract with AP to expire in 2021. Although the contract contained an automatic renewal clause, there was an expectation that the contract would not renew. Additionally, AP’s company changed during the term of the contract and a contract with the new company was never provided. Client believes AP has not only failed to fulfill the terms of the contract but has infringed his copyright in his music and is intentionally interfering with Client's business relations.Client is seeking termination of the contract, repayment of inappropriate expenses and compensation for the infringement of his music and interference with his career prospects.
