What? Yes. $400 billion. Not a typo.
A local guy from Chelsea, MA wrote a song entitled "(Man, I Really) Love This Team" in early 2004 about, of course, The Red Sox. He proceeded to hand out demo versions outside Fenway, to Red Sox executives, and sent the song out to countless local radio and TV stations, ultimately earning him and his song appearances on radio, television, sports websites (including the 180,000+ hit-per-day fenwaynation.com), and music websites. He also hand-delivered (to some members) demo and lyric sheets to at least 25 members of the Red Sox Organization--players, coaches, board members.
Now, he's come up with a quite lengthy (abbreviated version link pasted below) suit against Bon Jovi, TBS, MLB, FOX and Time Warner looking for damages, copyright infringements and 'mental anguish' in excess of $400 billion. Let me repeat that. $400 billion. What for? Bon Jovi's country-inspired song and lyrics that have been playing incessantly since October 2007. This includes all of The Jov's "Lost Highway" CDs, DVDs, live albums, concert-generated revenues, merchandise, and much much more....
