The hit musical “Jersey Boys” has been the subject of a copyright infringement/co-owner lawsuit, as previously discussed here and here.

Changing hats from being the defendant in a copyright infringement suit to “singing the tune” of the plaintiff, Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, and the playwrights of the musical “Jersey Boys” filed suit against “The Boys in Concert” tour, alleging similarity of songs, stage elements, and logos.

According to news reports, the plaintiffs are seeking an injunction against further performances of The Boys, $150,000 US for each of 10 songs from Jersey Boys used in the show, and additional unspecified damages.
