Business Litigation Archives

Breach of contract suit filed against rap artist

A music company in another state recently claimed that a rap artist breached its contract with the company by canceling a performance he was supposed to give at a festival organized by the company. The company has also accused the artist of fraud, claiming that the rap artist stole more than $200,000 from it. It has therefore filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the artist's business. Likewise, business owners who believe that they are victims of breach of contract in Massachusetts have the right to take legal action.

Business litigation involves Vans and Target

A shoe manufacturing company in another state, Vans, recently claimed that Target engaged in trademark infringement when it created its Wild Fable brand, which launched last fall. It has thus filed a lawsuit against the department store company. Likewise, any business in Massachusetts that believes it is a victim of trademark infringement can seek damages through the business litigation process.

Business litigation involves alleged copyright infringement

A company responsible for collecting artists' and songwriters' royalties recently decided to sue 12 establishments in various states, including one in Massachusetts, for copyright infringement. According to the company that initiated the business litigation, the establishments were playing the artists' music without paying the artists. Any business owner in Massachusetts who feels that he or she is a victim of copyright infringement can likewise seek justice through the civil court system.

Supplier files breach of contract suit against Dick's

A company in another state recently claimed that Dick's Sporting Goods abruptly stopped its sale of certain  weapons. In addition, the sporting goods store reportedly refused to accept the company's ammunition deliveries despite having ordered them.

Likewise, companies in Massachusetts that feel that they have been negatively impacted by a breach of contract can seek justice through the civil court system.
