Martino Conspiracy Sues On Copyright of Album Only He and Father Bought Copies Of

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 10 – Tony Martino formed music group "The Martino Conspiracy" and issued an album, "Hope in Isolation." Then he sued for copyright infringement.  

On December 10, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.  

Marino initially filed his lawsuit in Illinois. It was removed to the SDNY. He says his albums was played on and Live365, and - all without license. He has sued SONY's Orchard Enterprises.  

The defendants say Martino "does not need 183 paragraphs and 63 pages to assert his claims for copyright infringement and conversation.

They says they only sold six copies of the album and 11 individual tracks, "these purchases were solely by Plaintiff and Plaintiff's father seemingly in an attempt to create the grounds for the immediate infringement action."

The case is Martino vs The Orchard Enterprises Inc, et al., 20-cv-9062 (Woods)
