Range Road Music v. East Coast Foods (9th Cir. - Feb. 16, 2012)

Did you allow a live band to cover some Coletrain songs at your jazz lounge?  Play a CD over the speaker in the lounge?

Well, then, you're going to have to pay $4500 in statutory copyright damages for each song.  As well as over $160,000 in costs and attorney's fees to the other side.  Not to mention your own costs and fees.

That'll teach you to mess with Hollywood.
