On August 23, 2019, Yesh Music (“Yesh”) voluntarily dismissed its copyright infringement case against Amity Education Group (“Amity”) with prejudice. The case was dismissed before Amity filed a response. As previously reported, in May 2019, Yesh brought suit against Amity for alleged infringement of an original musical composition entitled "Equinox," which was registered with the US Copyright Office. Amity allegedly used the song in an advertising video on YouTube without obtaining a license from Yesh.
This is the most recent in a string of cases filed and voluntarily dismissed by Yesh in the past few months. We previously reported on Yesh's suit against St. George University as well as an infringement case against Gettysburg College.
