Greg Young and Steve Haney won a preliminary injunction against two musicians who formerly were members of a world-famous rap group named “Pharcyde.”. Although the rappers had signed an agreement with the founding members of the group, under which they agreed to not use the group’s name, they nonetheless were found to have violated the agreements and infringed on our clients’ rights. As a result, the Honorable Judge Christina Snyder entered a preliminary injunction against the former band members and the music company that produced the group’s landmark album. Haney was quoted as stating, “It is sad that the defendants had to steal the name they gave up in written agreements to make a buck. The concert goers who were duped into thinking they were seeing the real band certainly did not get what they paid for.”
