Queen Manager Has Freddie Mercury Gorilla Art Removed

(hennemusic) A Freddie Mercury gorilla sculpture has been removed from a Norwich, UK street exhibit over copyright issues after Queen's manager contacted organizers.

Organizers of Go Go Gorillas, a public art trail in Norwich, were contacted by Queen's manager Jim Beach on behalf of the Freddie Mercury estate, according to The BBC.

The estate claimed the suit "worn" by the gorilla breached copyright, and it asked the Freddie "Radio Go Go" Gorilla sculpture, which Norfolk artist Mik Richardson took three days to create, to be "taken off the streets". more on this story
