Broadcast Music, Inc. et al. v. ADE Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a Kaptain Jimmy’s Restaurant & Distillery et al. (20-cv-30019).

Music licensing behemoth BMI sued Agawam’s Kaptain Jimmy’s, as well as the officers of the ADE, the corporation that owns and operates Kaptain Jimmy’s, accusing the establishment of hosting unlicensed public performances of BMI-controlled copyrighted music. BMI asserts that it communicated by mail, e-mail and phone with Kaptain Jimmy’s over 50 times since 2018, but Kaptain Jimmy’s refused to cease the performances or pay the license fee. BMI seeks an injunction as well as statutory damages and attorneys’ fees.
