Diesel Power Gear Was Sued For Using Copyrighted Mural now Calculation of Damages

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 3 – Shae Petersen, who created art under the the name SRIL, sued Diesel Power Gear LCC of Utah for misuse of his mural.         

      On April 1, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Stuart D. Aaron held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

  SRIL's murual was on Reddit, then taken by Diesel Power Gear for its own profit. The defense lawyer asked why it is being made a Federal case.

Uh, because of the Copyright Act?

 Judge Aaron asked for a joint status letter by April 8 about limited discovery.

There was talk of appointing a mediator. The parties want it to be a person expert in copyright law and Judge Aaron said that would be the goal, he is on the Mediation Services Panel.

On April 14 Judge Aaron held another conference and Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Aaron directed the plaintiff to provide a supplemental response regarding the calculation of damages. Motions are due July 11, and replies by August 15.

The case is Petersen v. Diesel Power Gear, LLC et al., 21-cv-8827 (Carter / Aaron)
