H.R. Jothipala case: Marians band leader given time extension to file objections


The Colombo Commercial High Court gave further time on Marians musical band leader Nalin Perera to file objections regarding a lawsuit filed against him for allegedly infringing the intellectual Property Rights of the late prolific playback singer in Sinhala cinema, H.R. Jothipala, for commercial purposes, today.

Accordingly, Commercial High Court Judge Mahindananda Samayawardena fixed the matter for May 4 and directed the respondent to file objections at the next hearing date.

Filing legal action, the late popular singer's wife Blossom Jothipala and his four daughters complained that their intellectual property rights were violated by the defendant artist after organising a concert titled "King of 70's Unplugged".

They alleged that King of 70's Unplugged by Marians live in concert was held at the Nelum Pokuna outdoor premises on January 22, 2017.
