Remix album of Elvis Presley Christmas classics.
EPE Win Case Against Spankox
He became the first person to be officially endorsed by EPE with his release of 'Baby Let's Play House' back in 2008 which lead to two remix albums again with the full backing of EPE. However, now in 2011and EPE have been awarded summary judgment against Agostino Carollo (DJ Spankox) in the Chancery Division of the High Court of England and Wales.
Mr. Carollo requested permission from EPE to create a remix album of Elvis Presley Christmas classics. While the parties had entered into an agreement with respect to Mr. Agostino's first album of Elvis Presley remixes and a follow-up album, EPE advised Mr. Carollo that it would not support nor endorse such a Christmas remix album.
Nevertheless, Mr. Carollo released the Christmas remix album which included EPE's trademarks, logos, and photographs.
In June 2010, EPE sued Mr. Carollo for “breach of their previous contracts, trademark infringement and passing off.” On Feb 1, 2011, the Chancery Division of the High Court agreed with EPE's legal arguments and awarded EPE a summary judgment.
As part of this summary judgment order, Mr. Carollo is restrained from continuing to infringe EPE's trademarks and ordered to pay to EPE monetary damages and attorney's fees.
This is one of many legal actions that EPE has undertaken that show the company’s dedication to protecting its intellectual property.
