Recent Legal Actions
We want to make all Elvis Presley Fan Club Presidents aware of several legal actions that have taken place recently, and remind everyone of the steps to make sure all your Elvis-related activities are handled properly.
In addition to these actions, several more are currently underway and you will be hearing about them very soon. EPE will not tolerate infringement of our intellectual property rights, whether it's as part of the production, sale and distribution of bootleg merchandise, use in advertising, or in connection with the illegal distribution of bootleg DVDs and CDs.
Any fan club found to be holding a concert or event, or producing or selling unofficial bootleg merchandise of any kind, will receive a legal notification letting you know of the infringement.
Should that activity not cease and desist immediately, the fan club will be in violation of their fan club agreement. Their status as an official Elvis fan club will be revoked and the appropriate legal action will be taken against them.
As a protest: ElvisFans Worlwide decided to remove EPE's site from their computer.
And EPE already lost customers since ElvisFans decided to stop buying from them.
