Eric Clapton has sought to make his position clear regarding a bootleg CD case involving a woman in Germany.
The management for the English rock and blues guitarist said that he does not intend to collect the fine ordered against a German widow who attempted to sell a Clapton bootleg online.
Gabriele P.’s attempt to have the case against her dismissed was rejected, and the judge ordered her to pay the costs of the Court and $4,000 in legal fees for both parties.
“If the individual had complied with the initial letter the costs would have been minimal. Had she explained at the outset the full facts in a simple phone call or letter to the lawyers, any claim might have been waived, and costs avoided,” Clapton’s management said in a statement.
The statement added, “However, when the full facts of this particular case came to light and it was clear the individual is not the type of person Eric Clapton, or his record company, wish to target, Eric Clapton decided not to take any further action and does not intend to collect the costs awarded to him by the Court.”
