On Monday the district court of Bergen started processing the complaint from Rune Lindbæk against Röyksopp, it was also the day the circus came to town! In fact, this trail is only good for the yellow press selling more papers…
If you aren’t familiar with the case, then please read this and this to get up to date what all the fuzz is about. Hadn’t it been for that I had already written about this complaint I wouldn’t have touched it even with a 10 feet pole! Why? Well, I didnt know that musicians had so much dirty laundry to show the world. Here is a few pointers:
– A mum have paid some of the legal fees.
– Free mini gig by Röyksopp (where they showed that they had sampled Jarre).
– Counter complaint to discredit Linbæk for composer rights of “Lift” by Drum Island.
– A brother in law on the witness list.
And the list just goes on! Cant think about all the gruff that will be dug up during the closing 3 days. MToK has decided to leave this matter alone from now (will update this post with the verdict though). Will end this post with a brilliant parody of the longest running soap serial in Norway (sorry but it is in northern Norwegian).
Update: The complaint against Röyksopp was dismissed, and they also won their counter complaint. Rune Lindbæk does also have to pay Røyksopp’s cost for the trail.
