Elvis Presley Enterprises sues for copyright infringement, illegal sale of box set
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Elvis Presley Enterprises says it's suing men in Florida and England on claims of copyright infringement and illegal sale of a DVD and CD set of recordings and footage of the singer's performances.
The Memphis-based company says it filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in the Chancery Division of the High Court in England and Wales against Joseph Pirzada, alleging he's the source of the box set.
The set includes footage from a 1977 television special called "Elvis in Concert."
Elvis Presley Enterprises also sued Bud Glass on claims he illegally sold and distributed the Pirzada box set in the United States.
An email sent to Bud Glass Productions seeking comment wasn't returned. And an email sent to a recording company that lists Pirzada as its owner wasn't immediately returned.
