Keith Urban gets sued by guitarist from 70’s band…

KeithUrban

The guitarist in the 70’s band responsible for the hit ‘Baby Come Back’ is suing Keith Urban under the claim Keith used the band’s name for a guitar kit he’s selling.  Ummm, the band’s name is Player in case you were wondering. Hey…I was.

The New York Post’s Page Six said that Peter Beckett filed a suit in Los Angeles, in the US District Court, against the country music star. The guitarist behind Player’s hit “Baby Come Back,” is reportedly fuming over the “Keith Urban 50-piece Deluxe PLAYER Guitar Package” that was for sale on the Home Shopping Network for $399.

If you want to run out and buy the kit now? Well, the kit has since sold out, but it includes items like the “Keith Urban Deluxe Player guitar” and a DVD titled “Player by Keith Urban 30 Songs in 30 Days: The Complete Guitar Experience 30-disc DVD lesson set.” The kit boasts that buyers will learn 30 songs in one month, taught by Urban himself. Impressive, eh?

According to Patch.com, a trial date has been set for December in Los Angeles to review the alleged trademark violation.

“Defendants’ use of the trade name and trademark Player … are likely to deceive and will continue to deceive the consuming public,” the suit claims, according to Patch.com. “Defendants knew, recklessly disregarded, or reasonably should have known that such packaging, advertising, marketing, and promotion was untrue and/or misleading.”

Always interesting to see how these things turn out….
