Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KK), an organization focusing on music and church art, is suing a sex film producer for illegally using its music in several American movies.
Erik Hillestad, manager at KK, said that he never imagined music produced by Kristelig Kulturverksted would end up in sex movies.
Hillestad was in Los Angeles in March and hired the Beverly Hills based lawyer Todd Bonder. The film company MacDaddy Entertainment was summoned to appear in court May 13.
KK is now demanding USD 600,000.
«We can not accept that our music is abused in this way,» Hillestad said to the Norwegian paper Dagbladet. «This is nothing, but theft.»
At least three songs from the album Tranzania from the techno duo Stephan Groth and Christian Grimshei in Acid Queen were illegally used in six of the sex movies made by MacDaddy Entertainment.
