    The year is 1973, and you are a lawyer for Atlantic Records. While browsing in a record store, you discover that a pirate outfit called Bron-Yr-Aur Records has issued an unauthorized anthology of Led Zeppelin songs called Get the Led Out which includes three tracks from Led Zeppelin I, two tracks from Led Zeppelin III, and five tracks from Houses of the Holy. Write a letter to the president of Atlantic Records outlining possible strategies for blocking the further distribution of Get the Led Out.
    Here are a few additional facts that will help you make an informed decision about how to address this issue:
    -Led Zeppelin was signed to an exclusive recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1968, and was still represented by Atlantic Records in 1973.
    -Led Zeppelin I was released in 1969.
    -Led Zeppelin III was released in 1970.
    -Houses of the Holy was released in 1973.
    -The members of Led Zeppelin are credited as the songwriters for all ten songs. Warner/Chappell Music administers the publishing rights to Led Zeppelin’s music.

Dear Mr. President,


I am writing this letter to shed some light on potential strategies that should be implemented by Atlantic Records to block further distribution of ‘Get the Led Out’ by Bron-Yr-Aur Records.


I recently discovered that Bron-Yr-Aur Records has issued an unauthorized anthology of Led Zeppelin songs, under the title ‘Get the Led Out’. The brand’s decision to distribute Led Zeppelin’s songs is an infringement of Atlantic Record’s copyrights. Noteworthy is the fact that the songs were released between 1969 and 1973, yet Led Zeppelin has been on an exclusive contract with Atlantic Records since 1968. In attempt to curb this intellectual theft, I recommend the following steps.


First, Atlantic Records should establish that there is an existing exclusive recording and distribution contract with Led Zeppelin. This move will affirm the brands claims to copyrights, especially for content released since 1968, when Led Zeppelin signed an exclusive deal with Atlantic Records.


Second, Atlantic Records should establish whether the songs in Bron-Yr-Aur Records are copies of the original releases. In White-Smith Music Pub. Co. v. Apollo Co. (1908) the Circuit argued that “the intention of the copyright act is to prevent the multiplication of every means of reproducing the music of the composer to the ear.” The fact that ‘Get the Led Out’ incorporated ‘Led Zeppelin I’, ‘Led Zeppelin III’, and ‘Houses of the Holy’ prove that Atlantic Records’ copyrights have been infringed.


Lastly, share a cease and desist order which will be produced by the courts if the first two steps prove Bron-Yr-Aur Records’ infringement of Atlantic Records’ rights to Led Zeppelin’s works included in the anthology.
