Bob Dylan and Dee Snider have filed a massive $2.5 million copyright infringement lawsuit against a local radio station. The Bob Dylan, Dee Snider lawsuit claims that WOLD-FM committed willful copyright infringement of their songs starting last year. WOLD-FM is a Marion, Virginia radio station otherwise known as “The Renegade”, according to an exclusive report from LALATE News of Los Angeles.
In MPCA King of Spades v. T.E.C. 2 Broadcasting, Inc., Dylan and Snider are suing T.E.C. 2 Broadcasting and Thomas E. Copenhaver for willful copyright infringement .

The twenty-two page, seventeen count, complaint is seeking $150,000, not per alleged willful infringement, but per count. Messrs. Dylan, Snider and other defendants have yet to comment about the lawsuit.
