The former soloist of the Leningrad group, Alisa Vox, filed a lawsuit against the singer Sergei Shnurov to recover 19.5 million rubles for the use of her songs after leaving the group. About it informs RIA Novosti with reference to its lawyer Roman Lalayan.
“But this amount is not final, it will be adjusted when all sites send the execution data,” the lawyer added.
He claims that he tried to pre-trial agreement with the musician. In the singer’s company, the lawyer was told that Vox had “transferred” the right to deductions for 39 songs per thousand rubles.
“She did not sign such an agreement,” Lalayan said.
We are talking specifically about performing royalties; according to the lawyer, Vox does not apply for copyright.
Vox sang in the Leningrad group for over three years. The greatest popularity was brought to her by the performance of the song “Exhibit”, the video for which has collected more than 60 million views on YouTube.
In 2016, the singer left the group. The reason was the desire to start a solo career. However, the group “Leningrad” said that Shnurov fired the artist.
In 2017, Vox released a video for the song Malysh, which, according to Meduza, was filmed with money from government agencies. In the song “Baby” it was said that young people who want change should not go to rallies, where they turn into puppets, but should “start with themselves.”
After a while a wedge gone from the singer’s YouTube channel. Why it was removed is unknown.
