Wolfgang’s Vault streams concerts from the Golden Age (Fillmore, etc) and sells memorabilia. It identifies here what it purports to own, including the master tapes of the concerts, and copyrights in its memorabilia (and it even solicitis licensing) The site purchased the archives of rock promoter Bill Graham from Clear Channel Communications in 2002.
Today we hear that representatives of the Grateful Dead, Santana, Led Zeppelin and the Doors have sued Wolfgang’s Vault in the Northern District of California for copyright infringement of the memorabilia sold on the site (but ‘bootlegging’ is also mentioned in one published account. The complaint itself doesn’t seem to be on Pacer yet, so we’ll have to wait and see.
