Hunter’s Specialties Wins Judgments Over Unauthorized Use Of Johnny Stewart Sounds
Cedar Rapids, IA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Over the course of the past year Hunter’s Specialties has obtained court judgments and injunctions against three separate companies for unauthorized use of its copyrighted Johnny Stewart sound recordings.
The copyright infringements included said companies playing the copyrighted sounds on their web sites and allowing the sounds to be downloaded from their sites. There were also unauthorized sales of hand-held and remote calling devices loaded with the copyrighted Johnny Stewart sounds.
