Judge allows NMPA double damages of $300m in Peloton suit (US)

Story :

NMPA filed its original suit against Peloton back in March 2019 requesting $150 million in damages, alleging that Peloton’s exercise bikes had illegally used more than 1,000 songs in workout videos.

However, its latest complaint has asked for $300 million damages, after allegedly finding more than 1,000 additional musical works that Peloton has infringed as a result of initial discovery.

The newly discovered works include some of the “most famous and popular songs ever recorded”, according to Peloton. This includes Ray Charles’ “Georgia On My Mind”, “I Can See For Miles” by The Who, and The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There”.

NMPA accused Peloton of being a “textbook willful infringer” in the second complaint, filed on Friday, September 27.
