EMI has filed an amended complaint in their original lawsuit against Slep-Tone (the undisputed leader in today’s karaoke litigation industry). In their complaint filed on 11-13-2013, they ask for an injunction against Slep-Tone to stop them from distributing anymore of their intellectual property, and they ask for recall and destruction of all previously distributed discs under Slep-Tone ownership (that includes all Gem sets licensed by Slep-Tone).

in part the injunction states
"33. …..The Slep Defendants have conducted the exploitation of the aforementioned described brands of unlicensed discs under the guise of licensing issued by MCPS (“Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society”); However, all of the aforementioned brands of discs, the specific infringed copyrights with respect to which are identified on exhibits “2” – “4” attached hereto, have been produced and distributed outside the scope of the permission of any MCPS license issued relative to the recording of such discs and such conduct therefore constitutes copyright infringement. The guise of MCPS licensing has been fabricated in part by virtue of MCPS having issued a license to an entity known as “FSC Mediaplas, LTD” which is a dissolved UK corporation and not a party to this action, though believed to be under the ultimate control, if only in part, of the individual Defendant herein, KURT SLEP."

If EMI succeeds this would retroactively make ALL tracks from overseas (or Canada) ILLEGAL
