Quest for damages succeeds

A recent electronic bulletin from Daniel Advogados, Brazil, reports that the members of the musical group J. Quest are to receive the equivalent of around US$ 26,000 from local company Wizard Brasil Livros e Consultoria by way of compensation for the wrongful use of images, as well as the use of passages from their songs, following an order by the Minas Gerais State Court.

Wizard was initially entitled by contract to use the material in question, but carried on doing so post-termination. According to Wizard, its use was provided for under the contract, but the trial court disagreed. This decision is still not final as an appeal lies to the State's Court of Appeals.
