Frankie says litigation

A FIRM of London solicitors are “taking instructions” about the possibility of legal action against ZTT Records and Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

Bircham & Co say that recent Frankie advertisements for their current album, “Welcome To The Pleasure Dome” used a passage taken verbatim from a Wyndham Lewis book.

The solicitors say: “This quotation is a flagrant breach of copyright in that the passage is an exact quotation of the first page of ‘Enemy Of the Stars Synopsis In Programme’, recently republished in Santa Barbara by the Black Sparrow Press”.
