Parachute Club (Lorraine Segato et al) v. McCain Foods

In 1998 Kemp Law was retained by members of the Canadian music group Parachute Club to commence legal action against McCain Foods and EMI Music Publishing related to McCain's improper use of the song "Rise Up" in a television advertisement for Rising Crust Pizza.  The action was successfully resolved in advance of trial and the members of the band were able to recover all rights in their music publishing.
