Bon Jovi Facing $400 Billion Dollar Lawsuit - 08 Rewind

Bon Jovi Facing $400 Billion Dollar Lawsuit was a top story for October. Enjoy our 2008 news rewind as you read the story again:(antiMusic) Bon Jovi might be the next in line to lobby the Feds for a multi-hundred billion dollar bailout if they lose a copyright infringement case that was filed against them on Thursday. We very much doubt that Jon has a high enough credit limit on his Bon Jovi Mastercard to cover the bill he may face: $400 billion dollars. Yes, billion!

We recently told you about Boston musician Bart Steele who wrote a theme song for his home town baseball team, The Boston Red Sox, which he believed was later rewritten by Bon Jovi (see story). Steele filed a Federal lawsuit Thursday in the Massachusetts District Court's Boston Office against the veteran rockers and a host of other defendants.

The basic claim (that we could make out) in the lawsuit revolves around a song Steele wrote in September in 2004. In the suit Steele's composition is described as a "love song for his beloved Red Sox and a baseball playoff anthem fans could sing along with. He titled his song '(Man I Really) Love this Team', also known as 'Man I Love this Team.'" Steele says that through local airplay and public performances the song became well known by fans of the team as well as members of the team and their organization. - more on this story and see related follow up stories
