'Lucifer' Season 2 News & Update: Warner Bros. Face Lawsuit For Series' Soundtrack; Faces Copyright Infringement Lawsuit
Warner Bros. is facing a lawsuit right now for the "Lucifer" theme song. The copyright infringement lawsuit is filed by the composers of the song used in the series.
According to a report, The Marderosians are the ones who filed the complaint against Warner Bros. It is indicated that the musicians who also work under the name of The Mardos and Heavy Young Heathens were approached by composer Marco E. Beltrami in October 2015.
It is indicated that Beltrami approached The Marderosians since he has not been able to capture what Warner Bros. and NS Pictures wanted for the series "Lucifer." The Marderosians agreed to help in the composition of the song in exchange for co- writer credits.
In the meantime, it is stated in the lawsuit that Beltrami failed to inform Warner Bros. about the deal he made with the Marderosians. The complaint states that Beltrami then owned the composition and all the credits for the "Lucifer" theme song.
The Mardos notified Warner Bros. regarding the complaint that they have against Beltrami using the song, but it is indicated that Warner Bros. continued to use it for the series "Lucifer." Warner bros. is now facing a lawsuit for copyright infringement while Beltrami is being sued for fraud. The full complaint can be viewed here.
